Mater Chicks in Pink

Background

As the daughters, granddaughters, sisters, nieces, friends and supporters of women who had been diagnosed with breast cancer, Mater Chicks in Pink was formed years ago to provide tangible and immediate benefits to women with breast cancer cared for at Mater. Today, Mater Chicks in Pink supports breast cancer services at Mater Private Hospital Brisbane, Mater Private Hospital Redland, Mater Hospital Brisbane and Mater Research.

Mater Chicks in Pink is a program run by Mater Foundation which engages philanthropic and community support for Mater Health and Mater Research.

How you can make a difference

Did you know that 15 934 women in Australia were diagnosed with breast cancer in the past year alone?*

That’s 43 of our mothers, daughters, sisters and friends who today will hear the words “you have cancer.” It’s a figure that is as staggering as it is heartbreaking.

Fortunately, many of these women and their families will come to Mater Chicks in Pink to receive treatment and support.

By donating to Mater Chicks in Pink you can help these women focus on the moments that matter most, and alleviate some of the huge emotional and financial burden that comes with a breast cancer diagnosis.

Your generous support will help fund tangible support items—such as counselling and mastectomy bras—to make an immediate impact in the lives of women with breast cancer today; as well as promising research which will benefit the women who walk through Mater’s doors for breast cancer treatment tomorrow and in the future.
