The Asthma Foundation WA is a community-based, not-for-profit organisation dedicated to helping people breathe better.
The Foundation was founded in 1964 from the personal concern of a group of dedicated people, brought together to consider how they might help people affected by asthma.
Forty years on, the Asthma Foundation WA has established itself as a leading community organisation that funds local research into asthma and provides education and support services for people with asthma, their families
In 2010, the Foundation undertook a new strategic direction and launched a new look. The membership programme was also redesigned to cater more for the individual needs of people with asthma.

Breast Cancer Care WA (formerly Breast Cancer Foundation of WA) has been providing personalised emotional, practical and financial support and care to people affected by breast cancer since 2000.
Receiving no government funding, Breast Cancer Care WA relies on the generosity of the WA community in order to provide its range of services at no charge.
We are staffed by a team of professional women from various backgrounds, who share a common passion for making a difference in the Western Australian community.
What we do
Every person will have a unique experience with breast cancer and Breast Cancer Care WA aims to provide each person with the support that will best suit them.
Breast Cancer Care WA provides a range of services designed to alleviate some of the stresses that may be faced after diagnosis, during treatment and in the long term. Services are also offered to carers and family, who have their own challenges and needs through the experience.
Breast Cancer Care WA also places a strong emphasis on educating the community to increase awareness and early detection of breast cancer.
Breast Cancer Care WA supports families from all over the state and places the highest value on each individual by asking “how can we support you?”
If you or someone you know is affected by a diagnosis of breast cancer and needs some support, please contact us.
Our support services include access to specialist breast care nurses, counselling, specific support groups, financial assistance including; travel and accommodation expenses for country people, help with general household bills and gaps in medical expenses, practical assistance including; transport to and from medical appointments and help with basic living needs during treatment like cleaning, peer support or just being a friendly shoulder in times of need
Thanks to the generosity of the Western Australian community, all of our services are free of charge and tailored to meet the needs of each individual.

Breast Cancer Care WA was the first of its kind to establish services specific to Indigenous women and their families. Our full time program coordinator conducts free breast cancer information workshops throughout WA and works with health organisations in each region to provide emotional, practical and financial support.
Early detection leads to more effective treatment and can save lives, which is why Breast Cancer Care WA places a strong emphasis on educating the community about breast cancer.
With one in nine women being diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime, educating the community is paramount.
Early detection saves lives, so be breast aware!
Why are we purple?
We chose purple as our corporate colour to set ourselves apart from other breast cancer organisations. So when you’re looking for breast cancer support services – think purple!
How we are funded?
Breast Cancer Care WA receives no recurrent government funding and relies solely on the generosity of the WA community to continue its vital work. Sponsorships and donations are the life source of the assistance we provide to those who have been diagnosed with breast cancer and are in need of basic support and care.
Importantly, money raised in WA stays in WA.
