FDA confirms link between silicone implants and blood cancer

Alice Rich 0 1934
Last month, the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) confirmed a link between breast implants and a type of blood cancer called lymphoma. The official stance of BCFNZ on silicone breast implants is that there is no evidence to support the claim that these implants cause breast cancer. While lymphoma is not a type of breast cancer, we wanted to clarify what the FDA’s findings mean for women who have, or are considering getting, synthetic breast implants as part of their post-cancer reconstructive surgery plan. 

Good news / bad news – Pharmac’s new drug deal a bitter pill for 160 long-suffering patients

Pharmac’s decision to fund pertuzumab (trade name Perjeta) from January 2017 for New Zealanders with advanced (metastatic) HER2+ breast cancer will be good news for patients diagnosed from the New Year onwards, but is a bitter pill for the 160 Kiwis who have been deprived of this significantly life-extending drug so far and now appear to be shut out of the new agreement.

The Unexpected Benefits of Volunteering

Helen Glenny 0 1351

Volunteers are the lifeblood of non-profit organisations. Each year, over 10,000 people donate their time to the NZBCF, whether it’s out on the streets, on the road, or in our office.

There’s no doubt that these volunteers enjoy themselves. Doing good, after all, makes people feel good. But that’s not the only benefit of volunteering. Researchers have found that giving up your time for a cause could actually help you live longer.
