Through our volunteers Bosom Buddies provide direct and personal support to women, their families and supporters, and the community in many ways:
- By working closely with the breast care nurses we provide support to patients in hospital, as well as ongoing ‘buddy’ support while the person is going through treatment.
- We raise awareness in our community about breast cancer and the importance of early detection.
- We run workshops, social activities, information booths and fundraising stalls.
- We advocate for better facilities and services for breast cancer patients.
Fundraising is important to us and we depend on our volunteers and on local donations to raise funds for all our work. We do not receive funds from allied research or breast cancer or national cancer organisations, or from governments.
