LGIAsuper Community Hub welcomes Breast Cancer Network Australia (BCNA) for game day this weekend, with information and giveaways for members and fans.
In 2017, it's estimated that over 17,000 new cases of breast cancer will be diagnosed in Australia, calling for a greater support network for the individuals and families affected – and that’s where the BCNA can help.
Breast Cancer Network Australia (BCNA) works to ensure that Australians affected by breast cancer receive the very best support, information, treatment and care appropriate to their individual needs.
BCNA community fundraising events coordinator Kris Paproth said that breast cancer has a ripple effect on the entire community, and hopes that their presence at the game this weekend will send a message of support to people affected by the disease.
“We also want people who attend the match who have been affected by breast cancer to know that there is support available, and that the Cowboys and the whole community are behind them,” Mr Paproth said.

BCNA are excited about the opportunity to share information about their services and help raise awareness and funds to continue to assist thousands of Australian families every year.
“We are looking forward to the opportunity to engage with the Townsville community and connect with people who may have been affected by breast cancer and who may not be aware of what support is available,” Mr Paproth said.
“We hope people will leave the match with a better understanding of the work we do and spread this message to their family and friends.”
LGIAsuper is proud to be able to support Breast Cancer Network Australia, by helping promote the number of services, programs and resources to support those who have been diagnosed with breast cancer.
Teaming up with the Cowboys gives LGIAsuper the opportunity to drive positive change through education and social initiatives, so be sure to visit the Community Hub and learn more about the important work this organisation is doing in your community.
