Supporting breast cancer survivors through their journey
Every day 38 women will be told they have breast cancer. This means 14,000 women will need support in 2012. Every day, Breast Cancer Network Australia (BCNA) is there for these women, their families and friends.
BCNA is the peak national organisation for Australians affected by breast cancer. Their vision is to ensure that all Australians affected by breast cancer have the very best treatment, care and support – no matter who they are or where they live.
Sussan is proud to be part of BCNA. Our support and fundraising efforts help to ensure all BCNA’s programs and services meet the ongoing needs of breast cancer survivors and importantly, are available free of charge.
Our long term partnership began in 2006. Together with our customers support we have raised over $1,000,000.
In this time we have raised money to assist BCNA to develop many new resources and programs including; a resource for women with secondary breast cancer called Hope & Hurdles and the development BCNA’s online community – where anyone affected by breast cancer can meet and share their experiences, night or day, in the safety of their own home.
We support BCNA through:
- Donations from BCNA product sales instore
- Distributing information to our customers about BCNA’s resources including the My Journey Kit
- Fundraising through the Sussan Women’s Fun Run
- Support in BCNA’s merchandise development
- Production of apparel for BCNA’s Community Leaders and volunteers
- Workplace giving program with Sussan team members
- Advice and expertise in all areas of business
We would like to thank our customers who play a vital role in our partnership – not only by purchasing BCNA products in store but also by helping to spread the word about BCNA and their work. Through your support we are reaching out to those women and their families who need help.
