Breast Cancer Network Australia



The Breast Cancer Network Australia (BCNA) is Australia's peak organisation for breast cancer. Formed in 1998 following the first national breast cancer conference for women, the BCNA seeks to provide the best information, treatment, care, and support to all Australians diagnosed with breast cancer.

The BCNA undertakes a range of programs to assist those affected by breast cancer, they also produce a range of brochures and other resources, and host many events.

BCNA is one of four major breast cancer organisations in Australia. The National Breast Cancer Foundation, represented by the pink ribbon, raises money for breast cancer research. Cancer Australia uses the latest research findings to develop and update guidelines for health care professionals and educate the community on early detection. The McGrath Foundation raises funds to place breast care nurses in communities across Australia.

The four organisations collaborate closely with each other through representation on committees, input into strategies and sharing of knowledge, while focusing on their individual aims.
