We are a clinician-led organisation where patient education and support services are initiated by the very people who treat breast cancer patients every day.
Your donation will help us enhance breast cancer treatment and care, and increase survival rates.
We began in 2009 with a vision to provide high quality care while conducting research that would deliver the most advanced treatments and save lives.
BCRC-WA conducts research into breast cancer treatment and care that underpins the treatment we provide to our patients.
At BCRC-WA we have two dedicated Breast Care Nurses who provide support to patients of Professor Arlene Chan and Dr Peter Willsher with Early and Metastatic Breast Cancer.

Cath began her nursing career in Oncology at Princess Margaret Hospital. Later she worked at the Mount Hospital in Surgical and Medical Oncology.
Over 30 years, she has accumulated a wealth of knowledge and nursing experience caring for cancer patients. In her role at BCRC-WA, Cath provides education and support to patients and their families. Her chief focus is assisting patients undergoing chemotherapy after surgery.
