During Breast Cancer Month, you helped raise

    "This is an outstanding result and I am so grateful to Farmers staff and customers for the phenomenal support you are providing. Year after year, your amazing contributions make a real difference, helping us with our work in breast cancer support, education and research. A huge thank you from all of us at Breast Cancer Foundation NZ"

    Today 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer. This year 600+ will most likely die. Yet 30% of eligible women aren't enrolled in free screening and 60% of young women don't know the signs beyond a lump. We can help change these statistics. Farmers stores nationwide support Breast Cancer Awareness Month during October to help educate women around the country about breast cancer and raise vital funds for Breast Cancer Foundation NZ.

    Because together - Knowledge beats breast cancer.

    100% of your donations go to Breast Cancer Foundation NZ to provide:

    Support for women recovering from or living with breast cancer, breast cancer research including critical studies to improve survivorship and breast cancer awareness for early detection.
