Hawkesbury's Rebecca Stein has photographed some of TV’s hottest soap stars to pose for a calendar for breast cancer awareness. 

After her mother was diagnosed with breast cancer a few years ago, Mrs Stein wanted to help raise awareness and funds for the National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF).

Over the past nine months, she has been working with Home and Away stars, putting together a 2015 calendar.

‘‘In 2012 I did a fund-raiser with NBCF and Lynne from Home and Away was involved, so she helped me gather some of the current cast for my calendar,’’ Mrs Stein said. 

'‘The guys are so happy to be involved with it and everyone just loves them.’’

So far, Mrs Stein has photographed Home and Away stars Steve Peacocke (Brax), Nic Westaway (Kyle), Tai Hara (Andy) and Lincoln Younes (Casey), as well as UnderBelly actor Jack Campbell, drummer from Ready For The Fall, with more to come.

NBCF chief executive Carol Renouf said every dollar raised helps take NBCF one step closer to their goal of zero deaths from breast cancer by 2030. 

‘‘We’re now striving to accelerate the delivery of research results to reach zero deaths by 2030 and reduce the suffering caused by breast cancer, and we can only achieve this with the help of fund-raisers,’’ Ms Renouf said.

She is searching for businesses to sponsor a month on the calendar.
