Donate to save lives this Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
Every year, 3,300 women and 25 men are diagnosed with breast cancer. 650 will die.
That’s 650 Kiwis missing out on time with their friends, whānau, and loved ones.
But early detection is your best protection - breast cancer is most treatable when it's found early. In fact, women have a 92% chance of surviving breast cancer ten years or longer if the cancer is detected by a mammogram.
Breast Cancer Foundation NZ has supported regular screening from the beginning. The Foundation was established 25 years ago to ensure eligible women had access to free and regular screening. Since then, we’ve worked hard through community outreach, ongoing education, and free advice to increase the number of women who are getting regular mammograms.
We need your support now to continue this vital work.
