Early detection saves lives
Breast cancer is the number one cancer for New Zealand women
Breast cancer is much more treatable if found early. Our Pink Campervans start conversations and raises awareness of breast cancer.
The aim? To educate Kiwis on what the signs and symptoms are, how to check your breasts as well as the importance of having regular mammograms.
We want Kiwis to get to know their bodies and what their “normal” is so that they get any changes checked out straight away.
Programmes like this are vital, as sharing these important messages across the country encourages people to be proactive about their breast health. On average we visit 60 communities from Kataia all the way down to Bluff and talk to nearly 4000 people each year.
