Breast Cancer Support announces new governance team
Many charities rely on the time and expertise of volunteers to provide their services. Finding people with enough of both can be a challenge.
BCAC member group, Breast Cancer Support (BCS) has risen to that challenge, appointing a new governing team of seven multi-talented, enthusiastic and motivated women at its recent AGM.
BCS provides peer support services to women diagnosed with breast cancer and has nine support groups in Auckland, one in Christchurch, a local affiliate in Levin, and nationwide one to one support via its 0800 Help Line.
2018 Chair Helen Goudge has a professional background in marketing and publicity, and event management. She will utilise her skills to grow a membership base and organise fundraising activities.
Helen says the focus on peer support sets BCS apart from the many other breast cancer related charities.
“Breast Cancer Support is like no other breast cancer charity. We offer support and care provided by trained volunteers who have gone through the same experience. The skilled and hard-working men and women of the medical profession are nursing our bodies. We are here to heal hearts and let women know they are not alone. We give a unique gift to women diagnosed with breast cancer.”
