Shout powered by ANZ are providing ANZ BladePay™ devices in support of Cancer Council's Girls' Night In. These ANZ BladePay™ devices will be located across the country to help with fundraising activity.
The Shout app on ANZ BladePay™ accepts payments with the tap of a card or mobile wallet. The devices will enable our volunteers to accept donations and payment for merchandise from the increasing number of people who do not carry cash.
We are extremely grateful to Shout for making it easier for people to support Girls' Night In, and helping Cancer Council raise more vital funds.
The ABC is working with Cancer Council to host a very special series of “Girls’ Night In" events across Australia.
Jill Emberson is getting married two months after finishing her latest bout of palliative chemotherapy. She was freshly in love and stimulated at work when she was diagnosed with ovarian cancer. Nine months later, she was told she’d be lucky to be alive in five years. She’s not alone, 1,000 of the 1,600 Australian women diagnosed with ovarian cancer will not be alive in five years. There is no diagnostic test for ovarian cancer, and it’s often picked up once it has spread. A pap smear does not detect ovarian cancer.
Now Jill is sharing her story in an intimate podcast "Still Jill". www.abc.net.au/radio/programs/still-jill. To mark this series, The ABC will be hosting fundraising events as well as asking their listeners to support and host their own Girls' Night In events.
