The Breast Cancer Aotearoa Coalition (BCAC) provides a voice for New Zealanders who have experienced breast cancer.
We provide information, support and representation, empowering those with breast cancer to make informed choices about their treatment and care. BCAC is run by breast cancer survivors, and represents more than 30 breast cancer-related groups around New Zealand as well as individual members.
We have used our experiences to develop the Step by Step support pack. This provides resources, information and advice to those newly diagnosed with breast cancer. We aim to offer this free-of-charge to every one of the 3000 women diagnosed with breast cancer in New Zealand each year.
BCAC is also able to help women navigate the health system and provide information or assistance when it is needed.
