Breast Tumour Bank Deposits for Life Savings

The West Australian

In April 2014, Breast Cancer Research Centre-WA launched the first breast cancer specific tumour bank in Western Australia in conjunction and partnership with Western Diagnostic Pathology.

Tumour banks have been established by international world class cancer centres in a collaborative effort to understand cancer behaviour and ultimately improve patient survival rates.

BCRC-WA is a registered not-for-profit organisation, constituted to enable research into all aspects of breast cancer prevention, diagnosis, treatment and patient education and support. To date we have almost 3000 samples banked and we are encouraged greatly by the eagerness of every patient to be part of this project. We need financial help to continue this research and to aid future projects that will utilise this resource. If you would like to donate to ensure the longevity of the tumour bank, please click here.
