Kath Mazzella OAM is a Gynaecological cancer survivor. Tony Mazzella is her supportive and motivated husband. Together they are a unique and dynamic force for creating change in relation to the level of awareness of Gynaecological, Sexual and related Mental Health challenges and to break down the barriers and stigmas associated.
Mazzella Consulting, their official business, is focused on creating a better world for women challenged by Gynaecological, Sexual and related Mental Health conditions. Engaging in advocacy and community awareness, this dynamic duo are creative and inspirational, attested to by the long list of awards received for their work.
After her surgery Kath discovered how little women knew and talked about conditions “down there”, and how many women were suffering in silence. This empowered Kath to go on a journey … a journey that Tony had no choice initially but to go on with her. Now he has stepped up to stand beside her and promote this very worthwhile and necessary message, extending it beyond just the women, but also to the men that surround their worlds. After all, when one woman suffers, all those in her world suffer with her.
After placing an advertisement in a women’ s magazine, Kath was able to connect with others who had similar experiences, even taking Tony on a plane ride to the US, and this drove her to establish the Gynaecological Awareness Information Network Inc. (GAIN) which has informed and supported thousands of women.
Kath and Tony together are powerful advocates for women challenged by gynaecological, sexual and related mental health conditions, personally inspiring women (and a few men also), arguing for institutional and social change that delivers better awareness, prevention, treatment and support.
