Remembering Olivia Newton-John
We were all saddened by yesterday's news that Olivia Newton-John had passed away.
was an inspiration to many, as she very generously chose to open up her
life and share her story to help others affected by breast cancer.
We know it was a tough day for many in our network, but it was
also an opportunity to celebrate Olivia's dedication to improving
patient-centred care and raise awareness of metastatic breast cancer. What
a legacy to leave behind and one BCNA is proud to continue in our mission to
ensure everyone affected by breast cancer receives the very best care,
treatment and support.
Yesterday we were honoured to be asked to talk about Olivia's
work and impact on breast cancer research and treatment. Our CEO, Kirsten
Pilatti, and Director of Policy, Advocacy and Support Services, Vicki Durston,
spoke with media outlets The Age, Mamamia, ABC and 3AW about Olivia's
dedication to looking after the whole person and not only treating the
disease - something BCNA is also passionate about.
