Susie Butterworth started this petition to BreastScreen Queensland and

Today BreastScreen Queensland announced that as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic they are suspending their routine mammogram screenings. This situation is occurring in other states also.

I represent a co-hort of over 1600 women, Pink Sisters Australia and New Zealand who have been diagnosed with breast cancer. Many of us owe our lives to routine screening. 

The best way to survive cancer is to get an early diagnosis. 

For most people who get COVID-19 the symptoms are mild.

For most women who are diagnosed with cancer, even if its an early diagnosis the consequences are huge - mastectomy, chemotherapy, radiation, hormone therapy, maybe death.  TIME IS OF THE ESSENCE!

On behalf of all women we demand that screening continue. Our mothers, daughters, wives, sisters, even OUR lives may depend on it.
