September 2011 Recipients
Members of the Breast Cancer Network NZ can celebrate wide distribution of a coloured landmark 100th issue of the Network’s magazine Upfront U Kaiora, thanks to funding from the Mazda Foundation.
The Breast Cancer Network NZ is an independent breast cancer organisation established in 1993 for women who have experienced breast cancer and for their family members and friends.
Since the inception of the group they have published a bimonthly magazine – unique in that no other breast cancer group in New Zealand publishes a similarly informative and educational magazine.
“The publication of the 100th issue will confirm the commitment of the Breast Cancer Network to continue to provide support and information to women who have experienced breast cancer,” says Sharon Unasa, chairperson of Breast Cancer Network NZ. “Through our magazine we provide a voice for the concerns of women with breast cancer. Thanks to the Mazda Foundation we can continue to inform, share and educate on breast cancer and encourage lifestyle changes to reduce the risk of breast cancer for the benefit of the whole community.”
