Change for the best

Breast cancer changes lives. The Waikato Breast Cancer Research Trust works to change them for the better.

Evidence-based breast cancer research

Our research team work collaboratively with international and local research groups, providing Waikato and New Zealand women with access to improved surgical, radiotherapy and drug treatments, reduced side-effects, better communication and quality of life.

Never let it rest

In the Waikato, one woman every working day is diagnosed with breast cancer. Across New Zealand, eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer today. This year 600+ will most likely die. Yet 30% of eligible women aren't enrolled in free screening and 60% of young women don't know the signs beyond a lump.
