Breast Cancer Care WA announces donation from Hancock Prospecting to Fund Financial Assistance Program
Breast Cancer Care WA is proud to announce a partnership with Hancock Prospecting to support their financial assistance program for the next two years. This collaboration aims to provide much needed support to those living in WA facing a breast cancer diagnosis, especially in regional and remote areas of Western Australia.
Breast Cancer Care WA’s financial assistance program has been instrumental in helping individuals and their families, facing a breast cancer diagnosis, cope with the financial burdens that accompany the diagnosis. Through this program, clients can receive financial support, helping to enable that they can focus on their recovery without the added stress of financial strain.
Hancock Prospecting has committed to providing substantial funding to this program over the next two years, enabling Breast Cancer Care WA to extend their reach and impact within the regional and remote communities of Western Australia. The financial assistance program aligns perfectly with Hancock Prospecting’s commitment to supporting healthcare in rural and remote areas of Australia, as financial hardship is a significant cause of distress for those affected living in these areas. This donation follows Executive Chairman Mrs. Gina Rinehart’s long term assistance and support to breast cancer research, assistance and support initiatives spanning decades.
Breast Cancer Care WA’s CEO, Max Clarke, expressed his appreciation for the collaboration “We are really excited to have Hancock Prospecting’s support for our financial assistance program. Their commitment will directly impact the lives of those people affected by breast cancer in areas that often struggle to access the resources they need. This partnership allows us to extend our reach and provide much-needed relief to those who need it most, and this donation is even more necessary, given the program doesn’t receive any government funding.”
