ABOUT BREASTAWARE

Educational Program on Early Detection in Breast Cancer.

Support BreastAware

“Until such times that we have a cure for cancer we need to focus on the prevention.”

OUR STORY

Through education relating to lifestyle, diet, exercise and regular breast checks we can minimise the risks of women developing breast cancer and minimise the risk of losing their breast and/or life from breast cancer through early detection.

BreastAware is a not-for-profit community organisation led by a voluntary Board of Directors based in the Illawarra NSW.

Breastaware is a self-funded organisation dependent completely on the generosity of individuals and organisations.

We are driven by our values respect, accountability, compassion and integrity.

With knowledge we can tilt the scales in our favour and change statistics
