The Hong Kong Breast Cancer Foundation provides an array of services to cancer patients, survivors, patients’ families and the public, running programmes from counselling and free breast screening to patient support groups and educational talks.
Its Breast Cancer Research Centre provides emotional support and lymphoedema care services to breast cancer patients, as well as conducting important research into the issue, collecting and analysing data, releasing reports and collaborating with other research agencies.
The foundation does not receive any government funding, relying on the donations of individuals and corporations. Eliza Fok, who is a breast cancer survivor herself, is chairman of the foundation’s board.
