Breast Cancer Care WA (BCCWA) is a not-for-profit support group for people of WA who have been diagnosed with Breast Cancer. Since 2000, BCCWA has provided specialist breast care nursing, counselling, and financial support to women and men affected by breast cancer, as well as their partners and families. BCCWA do not receive government funding and their services are provided free of charge.

WA Charity Direct has been partnering with BCCWA for over a decade and we are very proud of the support we have provided in that time to their referred clients. In 2020, WA Charity Direct assisted 8 clients of BCCWA and their families with mortgage/rental support. In total WA Charity Direct has now supported 70 BCCWA families to date.

WA Charity Direct provides funds to help ease the financial burden of everyday expenses, in particular rental and mortgage payments whilst the recipient is undergoing medical treatment. The BCCWA referred recipients can have peace of mind that their immediate financial costs are taken care of, whilst they receive medical treatment and focus on their health and wellbeing.

In addition to the usual assistance Charity Direct provided support to BCCWA during the tough times of COVID in 2020. BCCWA’s usual fundraising activities were severely affected during the early COVID restrictions of WA. Watch BCCWA’s CEO Zoe McAlpine express their gratitude…
