BCNA Ambassadors and Events Champions

This is the iconic Field of Women

This year, more than 10,000 individuals, families and groups of friends from BCNA’s network across Australia will gather in Melbourne to stand together in the centre of the Melbourne Cricket Ground and form the Pink Lady silhouette.  This unique event aims to raise awareness of the impact of breast cancer while paying tribute to all those diagnosed.

Breast Cancer Network Australia has a variety of ambassadors that have been affected by breast cancer and choose to help support BCNA events and campaigns each year.  In addition to these ambassadors we invite a cross-section of the community to get involved as ‘Field of Women event champions’ to help spread the word about the unique opportunity to stand together in support of all Australians affected by breast cancer.  These event champions proudly promote this event to their networks with the invitation to ‘Stand with Me at the ‘G’ either in person or virtually.
