Breast Cancer Australia

What do you give the woman who gave you everything?

Media Release - 03/04/2017
Last year Australians spent around $2 billion celebrating Mother’s Day. This Mother’s Day, the Breast Cancer Institute of Australia is encouraging all Australians to give their mum the best gift of all – a gift for a world without breast cancer.

A donation to breast cancer research could help researchers find the next breakthrough in breast cancer treatment and prevention.

Supporters of BCIA’s Mother’s Day Research Appeal receive a beautiful card to give to their loved one which acknowledges their thoughtful gift. The cards are available now at

All money raised fund clinical trials research conducted by the Australia and New Zealand Breast Cancer Trials Group (ANZBCTG) – Australia’s only independent, collaborative breast cancer clinical trials research program.

Clinical trials are the critical step that proves new treatments and prevention strategies are safe and effective before they are made widely available. Support for clinical trials research will help to get new and promising breast cancer treatments to those who need them.Mother's Day Card

Approximately one in eight Australian women will be diagnosed with breast cancer by the time they turn 85 and about 48 women are diagnosed with breast cancer in Australia each day.
