About Us

Bosom Buddies mission is to connect people affected by breast cancer to support, information and services provided by Bosom Buddies and others within the Canberra community. Find out more here: www.bosombuddies.org.au

How your donation will help

Funds raised through this appeal will enable us to advertise and promote our Volunteer Team, which provide peer-to-peer support to those diagnosed with breast cancer, their family and friends. Our volunteers advocate to improve breast cancer treatment and services within our community and act as consumer representatives on ACT Health committees. Our activities include: 

  • A Blue Buddy bag that includes information about other support services available in our region: breast Care Nurses distribute the Blue Buddy bags to those having surgery in the ACT and surrounding regions. 
  • Coordinate and run coffee groups, after-work drinks, Mum's and Bubs group, young women's group, social events and other networking activities. 
  •  Run a calendar of Information sessions and presentations to help with diagnoses. Our Information sessions cover a wide range of topics from Reconstruction options, Nutrition, and Advance Care planning.
  • Deliver breast awareness presentations at schools, government agencies, local businesses, not for profits and other organisations. The presentations can be face-to-face or virtually. Bosom Buddies produce and distribute a shower tag explaining what to look for when completing your breast examination. The shower tag encourages women and men to check their breasts regularly and "Be Breast Aware". 
  • Bosom Buddies provides funding for those who cannot afford to purchase pre and post-surgical garments, wigs, lymphoedema garments and prostheses. 

Funding enables us to provide these events for free or at a discounted rate.
