FUNDRAISING

WHERE DOES MY MONEY GO?

THE BETTER WE UNDERSTAND BREAST CANCER, THE BETTER WE CAN FIGHT IT.

The Waikato Breast Cancer Research Trust is a charitable trust dedicated to obtaining the best outcomes for more than 3,000 women who are diagnosed in New Zealand each year – and eventually eliminating the disease.

Research is the best weapon we have to fight breast cancer. By providing our patients with access to clinical trials, we can advance our knowledge of breast cancer, discover best-practice treatments, and get all patients the outcomes they hope so desperately for.

The Waikato Breast Cancer Register is a key part of this, and provides us with data that we can benchmark against international standards to ensure that our patients are receiving the best treatment we can provide.

We receive minimal government funding for our vital research; we are completely reliant on donations.

And we need your support to help save the lives of our mothers, whaea, daughters, sisters and partners.

The Trust is chaired by Waikato Hospital breast surgeon, Ian Campbell. Ian has specialised in treating breast cancer since 1989, and has been involved in more than 35 clinical trials, including leading several in New Zealand and Australia. In 2013, he was made an Officer of the New Zealand Order of Merit for services to breast cancer patients.
