GOVERNOR OF WESTERN AUSTRALIA APPOINTED BCRC-WA PATRON

Breast Cancer Research Centre WA is pleased to announce Her Excellency the Honourable Kerry Sanderson AC as patron of the organisation.

The Governor of Western Australia has accepted the invitation from BCRC-WA, saying she was ‘delighted’ to be patron of the not-for-profit organisation.

Professor Arlene Chan – founder of BCRC-WA said it was a wonderful acknowledgement of the organisation’s pioneering work in the field of breast cancer research.

“With 1 in 10 WA women at risk of breast cancer diagnosis, it is incredibly encouraging to receive the patronage of our first female governor,” said Professor Chan.

“It is recognition for the tireless and important work undertaken by BCRC-WA since 2000.  “My constant driver is a dedication to improve the lives and treatment journey of my patients, it’s not about the acknowledgments. However, having Her Excellency as Patron of BCRC-WA places valued recognition and publicly reinforced the importance of our mission.”
