We are proud to offer people affected by breast cancer a range of support services through The Buderim Private Hospital Cindy Mackenzie Breast Cancer Program.

Anyone from the Sunshine Coast who has been diagnosed with breast cancer ​is able to access support services offered by the program.

As the Sunshine Coast’s only private not-for-profit hospital, we are a values-based organisation with strong ties to the community. Through the Cindy Mackenzie Breast Cancer Program and our comprehensive Breast Clinic, we are committed to delivering services for local breast cancer patients and their families.

The program honours the memory of Sunshine Coast mum Cindy Mackenzie who sadly lost her battle with breast cancer in 2006, aged 39. Sadly, Cindy is not alone in her fight against this terrible disease. Government figures reveal that in 2015, it is estimated that the risk of a woman being diagnosed with breast cancer by their 85th birthday is one in eight. The Queensland Cancer Registry reported that in 2011 more than 350 women on the Sunshine Coast were diagnosed with breast cancer. Breast cancer is still impacting far too many of our loved ones.

There are other breast cancer charities around Queensland and Australia, but only The Buderim Private Hospital Cindy Mackenzie Breast Cancer Program Foundation is specifically aimed at helping the Sunshine Coast community.
