"Beating Breast Cancer Together"
Sydney Breast Cancer Foundations mission is to improve the early detection of breast cancer and the quality of life & survival rates of breast cancer patients.
SBCF increases awareness of breast cancer by educating the community and encouraging women to be proactive in self-examination through the distribution of breast check shower cards. Early detection is vital to increasing survival rates.
SBCF provides support to breast care patients and their families through the provision of information, funding breast cancer nurses, as well as hardship funding, and much needed patient support programs within the wider community.
SBCF funds breast cancer research, including genomic research and fellowships. Cutting edge research such as the SBCF tissue bank enables targeted treatment which is one of the key drivers for the reduction of breast cancer mortality rates.
SBCF provides funding to the Breast Unit at Chris O’Brien Lifehouse to help it to provide the best possible treatment and care for patients including funding training and state-of-the-art medical equipment, and wholistic patient programs in the Living Room.
Our foundation team of passionate individuals comprises of 8 voluntary Board members, one full-time Foundation Manager, a part-time Event Manager and 5 subcommittee members who also volunteer their valuable time to advise the Foundation.
