BCNA News & Events
Did you catch the Pink Lady Match last Sunday? 300 breast cancer survivors and their family and friends walked side by side in a lap of honour across the grounds of the MCG.If you missed it, check out the great report from 7 News.

Are you ready for an adventure? BCNA has trekked the Great Wall of China and Macchu Picchu, then cycled Southeast Asia and now we are taking on Tuscany! Join a group of Pink Ladies and supporters for an amazing 10-day trek. To find out more, visit the Inspired Adventures Tuscany Trek website.

Breast Cancer Network Australia (BCNA) and the National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF) have delivered a joint submission to the two major parties contesting the 2016 federal election, the Liberal/National Coalition and the ALP. The submission, A better journey for all Australians affected by cancer, calls for the development of a national cancer strategy in response to the increasing incidence of cancer in Australia. We support a national cancer strategy that addresses the full spectrum of the cancer journey – from prevention and screening through diagnosis and treatment to palliative and end of life care, and the need for ongoing research into treatments and a cure. Our submission uses breast cancer to demonstrate that, while good progress has been made to date, there is still much to be done. To find out more, please visit 2016 Federal Election Submission.

Do you have trouble sleeping at night? BCNA has a new fact sheet that might help. You can download here it or order a hard copy here.
