Patient support programs

Find the support you need

Being diagnosed with breast cancer always comes as a shock. 

You may feel that your life has spun out of your control; you may experience feelings of confusion and maybe even anger. 

In a word, it’s overwhelming. 

But you don’t have to face the challenges of a breast cancer diagnosis and treatment alone. We’re here to help you. 

Through Mater Chicks in Pink you can gain access to personalised practical support items, such as hospital care packs, mastectomy bras, scarves and wigs, and much needed emotional support when you need it. 

Connecting face-to-face with others who are going through, or have gone through, a similar experience can be very beneficial, which is why Mater Chicks in Pink funds support programs and information sessions for women with breast cancer. 

These free support programs have been designed to enhance the lives of women with breast cancer and are designed for women and their families. ‚Äč

After my mastectomy surgery, the Mater Chicks in Pink team had already been to my room and left me things I didn't even know I would need. There were two soft pink pillows (two because I had a double mastectomy), a writing set to help remember the huge amount of information that I was given, some socks and information pamphlets as well.
