New resources for Greek and Chinese women

Research undertaken by BCNA has found that women from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds face additional challenges when diagnosed with breast cancer.

This is particularly so for women diagnosed with metastatic breast cancer.

To help support these women, BCNA has developed new information about metastatic breast cancer in Greek and Chinese. The resources are available on BCNA’s website and include:

  • bilingual booklets in Greek, Traditional Chinese and Simplified Chinese
  • audio resources in Greek, Mandarin and Cantonese
  • videos of women sharing their stories in Greek and Cantonese.

BCNA consulted with women from Greek and Chinese-speaking backgrounds in developing these resources.

For more information please contact BCNA’s Helpline on 1800 500 258. If you require a translation service, please call the National Translating and Interpreting Service (TIS National) 13 14 50.

This project is a Cancer Australia Supporting people with cancer Grant initiative, funded by the Australian Government.
