Breast Cancer Doesn't Discriminate - End of Year appeal
BCNA’s end-of-year appeal is now on! This November and December, we’ll be sharing stories of breast cancer survival to demonstrate that breast cancer doesn’t discriminate. Please give to BCNA today to ensure that everyone diagnosed receives support.
It is well known that breast cancer affects many, many people every day. This year alone, more than 16,000 Australians will be diagnosed.
Much less well known is that breast cancer affects people from all walks of life. The popular understanding of breast cancer is that it only affects older women. At BCNA, we know that breast cancer doesn’t care about age, income or gender. It doesn’t care about where you’re from or who you are. Put simply, breast cancer doesn’t discriminate.
BCNA is the biggest support network for Australians affected by breast cancer, and we want to make sure we can continue to be there for all 43 people who will be diagnosed today, tomorrow and every day this year.
Here is how your donation allows every Australian diagnosed with breast cancer to receive support:
- $60 connects recently diagnosed Australians with breast cancer support services in their local community
- $100 buys free telephone counselling sessions for people affected by breast cancer
- $200 helps BCNA create a dedicated program to connect with Australians newly diagnosed with breast cancer.
