This resource, launched at the inaugural Cancer Australia Pink Ribbon Breakfast, outlines the clinical management of early breast cancer to support Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women with breast cancer and their families.

My breast cancer journey: a guide for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women and their families has been developed in response to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women highlighting the need for culturally appropriate, supportive breast cancer information. It contains practical information to help navigate the breast cancer journey and improve understanding about breast cancer, treatment options and follow-up care.

This resource has been created in collaboration with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women with various stages of breast cancer, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women working in the health sector and family and friends of women diagnosed with breast cancer.
