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.
PYNKS is a supportive social group run by BCRC-WA in Perth, Western Australia, for patients with metastatic or advanced breast cancer.
PYNKS derives its name from Positive, Young, Nurturing, Kids/family focused, Strength-giving … words that sum up BCRC-WA’s warm, friendly and welcoming social group for patients with metastatic breast cancer.
Metastatic breast cancer (also known as secondary or advanced breast cancer) is a when cancer has spread from the breast to other parts of the body.
Join our PYNKS meetings each month to share and connect with others like-minded people who can provide understanding, friendship and support.
Our free program involves casual coffee catch-ups and chats, fun activities and outings.
PYNKS is free and open to anyone living with metastatic breast cancer. We also welcome family, children, friends, loved ones and carers to some of our events.
Our regular event is a coffee and chat morning on the second Tuesday of every month from 10 am until 11.30 am.
BCRC-WA staff will be in attendance.
The PYNKS meet every second Tuesday of every month for coffee and chat.
