Every year, approximately 3000 women in New Zealand are diagnosed with breast cancer. Of the 8 women who are diagnosed each day, 1 will be Maori.
Breast Cancer is the most common cancer in NZ for women and the third most common cancer overall.
For the WE family, these numbers are very real and personal. In July 2017 WE Director Wyndi was diagnosed at the young age of 36, with the disease that tragically ended her paternal Grandmother's life when Wyndi's father was a young teen. WE's payroll specialist Kayne has also experienced the agony of watching her mother undergo painful therapy and treatment in 2016. Whether through friends, family or even clients, we've all been touched in some measure by the devastating effects of breast cancer.
In recognition of the impact breast cancer has had on the WE family, we're hosting our very own Pink Ribbon Evening this May to raise funds for the Breast Cancer Foundation, who support patients and fund life saving research.
Please join us! Come and enjoy a delicious dinner and listen to Wyndi's story. Sign up for one of our raffles or participate in a silent / live auction. All money raised will go to the Breast Cancer Foundation.

Checked your breasts lately?
Breast cancer is most treatable when it’s found early. It’s important to know the look and feel of your breasts and Wyndi is a huge advocate for regular self examinations. Here is some information from the Breast Cancer Foundation website to help you become more aware of how to self examine and what to look out for.
Touch both breasts. You’re feeling for any lumps or thickening of the tissue, even up into the armpits.
Look in front of a mirror. Can you see any physical changes to the breast shape, skin or nipples?
Check any breast changes with your doctor. Even if you’ve had a mammogram recently.
