Do your bit for ovarian cancer research
Did you know that February is Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month? The whole month is dedicated to raising awareness for ovarian cancer and to recognise women – as well as their families and friends – affected by ovarian cancer.
So how can you get involved? Well, it’s very simple actually. All you need are your nails and a fabulous shade of teal polish.
See, teal is the official colour of Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month, and the good folks at Chemmart have decided to release a limited edition teal nail polish pack called Colour for a Cause that you can purchase* for $6.99 during the month of February. All proceeds will go to Ovarian Cancer Australia to help with raising awareness for the cause, as well as helping to support it and fund research programs.
Selected Chemmart pharmacies will also be offering in-store manicures to get your digits looking all kinds of fabulous. All they ask for in return is a gold coin (which will be passed on directly to the OCA.)
