Videos on breast cancer prevention and the benefits of mammography and ultrasound.
Time for a mammogram?
Listen to voices of those affected by breast cancer in this new campaign by the Breast Cancer Foundation NZ. It was designed to show "the far-reaching effects that breast cancer has on a family, and to grab the attention of the 30% of women who aren’t getting mammograms, since we know mammograms save lives".
Checked your breasts lately? We'll show you how
Learn how to check your breasts in this perky guide presented by Jacqueline Nairn and The New Zealand Breast Cancer Foundation. It's as easy as TLC. Get any changes checked out, even if you've had a mammogram recently – because breast cancer's not always a lump.

The New Zealand Breast Cancer Foundation recommends women start having regular mammograms from the age of 40 as screening can detect cancer long before a lump can be felt. Watch Anne's mammogram here.

1 in 9 NZ women will develop breast cancer in their lifetime. Breast cancer is highly treatable if detected early, so start mammograms at 40 and act on changes at any age.
