A major fundraising day continues to be world ovarian cancer day, AKA May 8, and in 2018 200 salons participated to raise money for the cause. In 2019 these efforts will continue as Pureology promise to ‘paint the town teal’ in honour of this important fight. Collectively Pureology salons have raised an impressive $12000 in the fight. Globally the brand have proudly commited $100,000 to ovarian cancer awareness, encouraging all salons to become a part of this amazing and ever-growing stat.
Ovarian cancer continues to be a pressing medical issue, with only a 45 per cent survival rate, no early detection capabilities and a stat of 15 per cent of diagnoses happening when already at an emergency state. As such, it remains the most underfunded and deadliest female cancer in Australia, and increased awareness, funds and education is paramount.
