Breast Cancer Network Australia (BCNA)
This year it is estimated that 14,000 women in Australia will be diagnosed with breast cancer, making it the most common cancer for women.
Breast Cancer Network Australia (BCNA) is the peak national organisation for Australians affected by breast cancer, and consists of a network of more than 65,000 individual members and over 300 Member Groups.
BCNA works to ensure that women diagnosed with breast cancer, and their families, receive the very best information, treatment, care and support possible. It is represented by the Pink Lady silhouette, symbolic of its focus on the woman diagnosed with breast cancer and all those around her.
Some of the key ways in which BCNA helps are through: information packs written by women for women, including the My Journey Kit for women with early breast cancer, and the Hope & Hurdles Pack for women with secondary breast cancer; The Beacon and The Inside Story – free quarterly magazines, including stories from women and articles about the latest breast cancer treatment, research, care and support; information forums – bringing women together and focusing on the latest breast cancer advances and key issues for women; leading campaigns on key breast cancer issues; the Online Network at www.bcna.org.au – connecting Australians affected by breast cancer.
