Breast cancer is the most common female cancer in NZ, with 9 women diagnosed every day.
Because of this, we believe that raising awareness of breast cancer issues and educating all women about breast health is vitally important.
Visit a Pink Campervan
Each year our specialist breast nurses travel around Aotearoa in one of our iconic Pink Campervans, providing free breast health advice. They visit towns and cities across the country, including our smaller communities, who don’t have access to the health services the bigger cities do.
Our education programme aims to promote mammograms, increase breast health awareness, reach out to at risk communities and increase knowledge of support/resources available through the foundation. Our National Educators are available for presentations.
Our awareness campaigns are aimed at educating women on the importance of early detection, the signs of breast cancer, the importance of getting any unusual changes checked out and having regular mammograms from age 40.
