Our 20th anniversary

In 2018, BCNA will turn 20.

Following her own breast cancer diagnosis in 1993, Lyn Swinburne worked tirelessly to establish links between breast cancer groups across the country.

This work culminated in the first National Breast Cancer Conference for Women, held in Canberra in 1998.

The launch of BCNA by Raelene Boyle followed, at the inaugural Field of Women on the lawns of Parliament House.

We will celebrate our 20th anniversary with a range of events and announcements in 2018. Keep an eye out on our website and in coming editions of The Beacon.
