Supporting local people
affected by breast cancer

A breast cancer diagnosis can be overwhelming.

But thanks to people like you, breast cancer patients and their families can access the support they need to focus on the things that matter most.

Our mission is to provide support to individuals and families who are fighting or recovering from breast cancer in our local community.

We are here to assist with the things most important to people in their time of need - with practical and emotional support. 

Everyone is unique and we pride ourselves on offering an experienced and empathetic ear for personalised support.


Helping individuals and families with their day-to-day needs and individual circumstances.


Providing emotional support and information from a qualified Breast Care Nurse.


Creating positive and long-lasting memories for individuals and families during a very difficult time.

Cindy was very community minded. She was compassionate, warm and caring. She loved people, life and laughter. 

In her months of treatment for breast cancer, Cindy’s most cherished moments remained those spent with her family and friends, especially with John and the two girls. 

Yet it was during her treatment that Cindy also realised that none of this would have been possible if they, their family and friends, had not had the financial means to make life comfortable and fun even while she was suffering so terribly. It is for this reason that before she passed away Cindy expressed a desire for John to give back to the community that so generously supported Cindy and her family.

The program honours Cindy’s memory and her desire to give back to the community that so lovingly and warmly supported her. It also reflects Cindy’s strong community spirit and the care she always had for those around her.

By supporting The Buderim Private Hospital Cindy Mackenzie Breast Cancer Program you can alleviate some of the huge emotional and financial burden that comes with a breast cancer diagnosis in your community.
