Australian Cervical Cancer Foundation,
On July 1st ACCF officially launched their Orange Hearts Bursary Program. Hyundai Help for Kids has partnered with ACCF on this special initiative in the hope that together we can help alleviate some of the financial strain a cervical cancer diagnosis can place on Australian families
The Orange Hearts Bursary program, supported by Hyundai Help for Kids, will be providing 10 x $500 bursaries to children 18 years and under from families who are battling a diagnosis of cervical cancer. Funds will be used to cover the costs of resources such as schoolbooks and stationery and aims to give children joy, escape, and hope, as well as a sense of stability and focus during what can be a stressful time.
This program aims to help families such as Dannii’s. A mum of two daughters and cervical cancer survivor, Dannii describes her 2018 diagnosis as ‘a whirlwind… I was a lot luckier than other women, but that didn’t make my journey an easy one’.
Applications opened on 1st July and will close on the 8th September and can be made via the online form here: Orange Hearts Bursary. For further information on the program and ACCF, please visit their website here: ACCF
The Australian Cervical Cancer Foundation has one mission – to eliminate cervical cancer in Australia. Nearly all cases of cervical cancer are caused by the Human Papillomavirus (HPV), and can be prevented by a simple, safe and effective HPV vaccine which provides 93% protection to cervical cancers. With the introduction of a new and more effective Cervical screen test (formally the Pap Test) ACCF are now looking to eliminate cervical cancer in Australia by 2028, an astounding 7 years earlier than previously declared (2035).
