MANicure for ovarian cancer
Ovarian Cancer Australia (OCA) Ambassadors actor Gary Sweet, rugby
league star Cameron Smith, and celebrity Chef Karen helped launch
Chemmart's MANicure campaign to raise funds for ovarian cancer during
Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month in February.
MANicure is a symbolic campaign
demonstrating that ovarian cancer is not
just a women's disease. It encourages
Australian men and women to paint
their nails teal -- the international colour
for ovarian cancer -- in a bid to show
their support for the women and their
families living with the disease.
The MANicure launch at Queensbridge
Square in Melbourne on
Sunday 1 February provided passers-by
with the opportunity to have their nails
painted teal for a gold coin donation. All
OCA Ambassadors were sporting a teal
MANicure at the launch with even Gary
Sweet trying his hand at painting nails.
MANicure is an extension of the Colour
for a Cause campaign launched by
Chemmart last year.
Carolyn Wynen, Casey Central
Chemmart Pharmacist, said: 'We are
proud to again be able to play a part in
taking a stand against ovarian cancer
and ensuring that no woman with
ovarian cancer walks alone.'
Limited edition Colour for a Cause teal
nail polish packs were available in all
Chemmart Pharmacies during February,
with all proceeds going towards OCA's
lifesaving work. Selected Chemmart
Pharmacies also offered in-store
manicures for a gold coin donation.
About 1400 Australian women are
diagnosed with ovarian cancer each year
and over 1000 will die of the disease.
Ovarian cancer has the lowest survival
rate of any women's cancer. Only 43%
women with ovarian cancer will still
be alive five years after the day they
are diagnosed. By comparison, the
overall five year survival rate for women
diagnosed with breast cancer is 89%.
