A better journey for all Australians affected by breast cancer.
BCNA works to ensure that Australians affected by breast cancer receive the very best support, information, treatment and care appropriate to their individual needs. We support, inform, represent and connect Australians affected by breast cancer.
|Support||We support and empower all Australians with a breast cancer diagnosis through our services, resources and programs.|
|Inform||We develop and provide high quality information in a range of formats including information that can empower participation in decisions about treatment and care.|
|Represent||We advocate on behalf of Australians affected by or at risk of breast cancer and work to set the best possible treatment and care standards.|
|Connect||We strive to help Australians affected by breast cancer to feel less alone throughout their treatment and beyond. We connect people through their shared breast cancer experience to build support for individuals, groups and communities.|
BCNA’s board, staff and volunteers are united by a passion to advocate for and empower Australians affected by breast cancer. We approach challenges with determination and resourcefulness by harnessing the collective power of our organisation, our members, our supporters and the wider Australian community.
BCNA respects and responds to the diverse journeys and perspectives of all our members, staff, partners and stakeholders. As a result, we are dedicated to being a transparent and accountable organisation, demonstrating integrity in all our dealings. We are committed to being open to change and innovation as we seek to best serve our members.
BCNA is respectful and responsive to individual differences and the needs and concerns of our members, staff, volunteers and partners. Caring, trusting relationships are fundamental to how we work.
BCNA was established by our founder Lyn Swinburne to ensure that no Australian has to face a breast cancer diagnosis alone. We recognise the importance of connecting people and organisations and encouraging collaborative relationships to deliver powerful outcomes for individuals and communities.
BCNA is committed to empowering Australians affected by breast cancer to respond with resilience to a diagnosis of breast cancer. We are also committed to promoting the resilience of our organisation and of our board, staff, volunteers and partners.
