Acrylic hanging earrings - Breast Front - Rose GoldSciencePlay
For 12 years (before the inception of SciencePlay Kids) Dr. Loz was a medical researcher investigating the factors that were thought to contribute to cancer chemotherapy resistance.
Since moving on from research and focussing on communicating science to kids, Dr. Loz has missed the lab. She wanted to find a way to still contribute and to improve the understanding on factors that contribute to the development of cancer and how to treat it.
By designing, creating and selling these earrings and giving a portion of the profit back to medical research. Dr. Loz has been able to keep following her passion to improve the quality of life of people touched by cancer.
In 2019, it is estimated that the risk of an individual being diagnosed with breast cancer by their 85th birthday will be 1 in 7 (1 in 675 males and 1 in 7 females). Medical research is improving our understanding of how breast cancer originates, grows and spreads so that we can improve the outcomes for all who are impacted. Breast cancer is the most common cancer in women in Australia (apart from non-melanoma skin cancer) and the second most common cancer to cause death in women, after lung cancer. By buying these earrings YOU are directly contributing to the fight against cancer.
