Sarah Murdoch has been associated with the National Breast Cancer Foundation since 1997 when she accepted the role of international spokesperson for Fashion Targets Breast Cancer, Australia. During this time she has become increasingly concerned at the impact of breast cancer on women, across all age groups, their carers and families.
As Patron of the National Breast Cancer Foundation since 2001, Sarah sees her role as raising the consciousness of business, the media and the wider community about the continuing need for new knowledge to improve the detection and treatment of breast cancer and to ultimately find its causes - giving us the potential to prevent it.
As Chair of Register4’s Women’s Advisory Network, she is delighted to work with key women in the private and public arena who can reach a large number of women in Australia to promote Register4.
Sarah has played a significant role in attracting extensive media for the launch of Register4 and more recently for the announcement of the first Register4 research project, the Baseline Health & Lifestyle Questionnaire. She is passionate about the difference Register4 can make to breast cancer research. “Register4 facilitates everyday Australians to make an individual contribution towards finding a cure for breast cancer, simply by donating their time. Register4 hopes to accrue the critical mass of participants needed to initiate significant research projects”.
