Our Major Partners and Supporting Partners are helping us achieve our vision that all Australians affected by breast cancer receive the very best support, information, treatment and care appropriate to their individual needs.
In 2015, Bakers Delight and BCNA celebrated 15 years of working together to support Australians affected by breast cancer. After the 2015 Pink Bun Campaign the partnership reached an impressive milestone with Bakers Delight having donated a total of $15 million worth of funds and pro-bono services to BCNA.
Each year during Bakers Delight’s annual Pink Bun fundraising campaign more than 600 Bakers Delight bakeries across Australia ‘pink up’ and donate 100% of the sale of their pink finger buns to BCNA. To date, Bakers Delight has sold almost five million buns through the Pink Bun campaign and raised more than $10 million to directly support thousands of women and their families through their breast cancer journey.
Last year, Bakers Delight to raised an incredible $1.5 million through their 2016 Pink Bun campaign. Money raised by Bakers Delight customers through this campaign will support BCNA’s information resources, including the My Journey Kit.
Berlei and BCNA formed a partnership in 2004 to bring comfort and support to women who have had breast cancer surgery through the My Care Kit program. Berlei supports this valuable program through the provision of Berlei post-surgery bras and soft forms, for women who undergo surgery for breast cancer.
BCNA and Berlei have delivered more than 130,000 My Care Kits to women who have recently undergone surgery for breast cancer. More than 13,700 Australian women received a free My Care Kit last year.
Berlei released two new rock star inspired bras in October as part of the 2016 I Touch Myself Project for breast cancer awareness. In tribute to Australian rock goddess, Chrissy Amphlett of the Divinyls, who passed away from breast cancer in 2013, Berlei have created The Chrissy Bra to encourage early detection of breast cancer by reminding women to touch themselves, and will donate 100% of the profits from the bra to Breast Cancer Network Australia (BCNA).
Since 2005, Sussan has raised more than $1.8 million to support BCNA’s programs and services. Every year Sussan stores feature a beautiful range of products from which a portion is donated directly to BCNA. Sussan also provides special clothing for our Community Liaisons and provide opportunities in store to promote BCNA’s work and support for those affected by breast cancer. This year, Sussan has launched a beautiful new gift bag range in support of BCNA.
Sussan has helped BCNA to develop new resources and programs, including our bilingual resources for women from culturally diverse backgrounds. Sussan’s customers play a vital role in our partnership – not only by purchasing BCNA products in store but also by helping to spread the word about BCNA and our work.
Red Energy is proud to partner with BCNA for the fifth year running to lend support to Australians affected by breast cancer. As Major Event Partner of the Pink Lady AFL Matches at the MCG, Red turns ‘pink’ for the day with co-branded merchandise to assist BCNA to raise awareness in front of an estimated crowd of 45,000 football fans.
The Pink Lady Match is a celebration of survivorship, the opportunity to pay tribute and remember those that are no longer with us. Together we’re seeking a show of solidarity at the Match to support those currently undergoing treatment or living with breast cancer. This important partnership allows Red Energy to work at a community level by enabling BCNA to continue to engage with the football community leading on from the first field of women 10 years ago.
Throughout the year Red Energy will continue to support BCNA with their calendar of events. Their part is to help to continuously raise awareness of breast cancer to the many thousands of people it affects both directly and indirectly. These events help raise awareness and much-needed funds which enable BCNA to provide free information, support, and services to those diagnosed with breast cancer.

BCNA's Workplace Giving program allows you to support people affected by breast cancer by making a regular, tax-deductible donation to BCNA through your employer's payroll system. Find out more about how to support BCNA through workplace giving.
The Australian Government, through Cancer Australia, supports BCNA across a range of our programs. As part of the Supporting Women in Rural Areas Diagnosed with Breast Cancer (SWRADBC) Program, BCNA receives funding to undertake a program of work to improve supportive care for women in rural areas diagnosed with breast cancer. This helps us to host regional and rural information forums and a National Summit, conduct Community Liaison training, undertake research and continue to develop our online network. The funding also supports the production of the My Journey Kit and Hope & Hurdles.
The Victorian Government, through the Department of Health and Human Services, is supporting BCNA to implement Active and Well After Breast Cancer - an exciting two-year pilot program to increase the provision of exercise and nutrition information and participation opportunities to Victorian women affected by breast cancer.
The program has a focus on two Victorian communities - north-western metropolitan Melbourne and Greater Bendigo - and is being delivered in partnership with Counterpart (formerly BreaCan) and the Australian Cancer Survivorship Centre.
