Awareness & Education

The Foundation believes that raising awareness of breast cancer issues and educating all women about breast health is important. Breast cancer is the most common female cancer with approximately 2,800 women being diagnosed with breast cancer each year.

The Foundation is committed to raising awareness and educating New Zealanders of the importance of early detection of breast cancer, promoting the practice of breast awareness and encouraging regular breast screening mammograms from the age of 40. We do this through our Awareness Campaigns and our National Education Programmes.
