Breast Cancer Network Australia
Breast Cancer Network Australia (BCNA) is the national voice of Australians personally affected by breast cancer. Represented by the pink lady silhouette, this organisation produces information for women with the disease and their loved ones. It is driven by women who have themselves experienced breast cancer and was launched in October, 1998.
BCNA initiatives to support women & their families include:
My Journey Kit - a free comprehensive information kit for women newly diagnosed with breast cancer. Since 1998 BCNA has distributed over 40,000 My Journey Kits.
My Care Kit - For women who have breast surgery as a result of breast cancer
Hope & Hurdles - A kit for women with secondary (metastatic, advanced) breast cancer.
Key fundraising initiatives include the Field of Women LIVE, Mini-Field of Women, Pink Footy Day and Bakers Delight Pink Bun. BCNA relies on the support of individuals and corporations and is not affiliated with any government body.
