Charity Support

Tier One:

Northern NSW Local Health District Richmond Specialist Breast Care Nurses

The Northern NSW Local Health District Richmond Specialist Breast Care Nurses provide information, education and support to patients and their families. They work within the Community to see people in both public and private hospitals, in specialists’ clinics and in patients’ own homes, as well as working with a specialist team of Doctors and Allied Health Staff to support women with both early and advanced breast cancers. They also provide a valuable link to connect patients with other services they may need.
Breast cancer detection has more than doubled in the last 20yrs, with breast cancer being the most common cancer diagnosed in women in Australia.

This year alone, an estimated 18,235 Australian Women and men will be diagnosed with breast cancer, meaning that approximately 50 Australians will be diagnosed with breast cancer each day. Advances in treatment and care, as well as improvements in the detection of breast cancer, mean that Australia has one of the best breast cancer survival rates in the world. New projections by the Cancer Council of Australia estimate that 359,000 people will be living with or beyond breast cancer by 2040 in Australia.
