The Waikato Breast Cancer Research Trust (WBCRT) is a charitable organisation with minimal government funding. Your financial support at our annual fundraising dinner ensures the Trust remains at the forefront of international breast cancer research.
Your support helps save the lives of daughters, sisters, mothers and grandmothers in our community.
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.
In the Waikato, one woman every 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. Research is the best weapon we have to fight breast cancer.
