“Get involved for a great cause!” Nadia encourages Kiwis to sign up for Pink Ribbon Breakfast

– May is Pink Ribbon Breakfast month

Registrations are now open for Pink Ribbon Breakfast, with celebrity cook and author Nadia Lim encouraging Kiwis to invite their friends to breakfast in May, to raise funds for Breast Cancer Foundation NZ.

Breast Cancer Foundation hopes to top last year’s total of over 3,600 breakfasts across New Zealand, which were attended by 90,000 people and raised $1.8 million.

Proceeds from this year’s Pink Ribbon Breakfasts will go towards breast cancer research and supporting patients undergoing treatment.

Nadia said she is happy to be fronting the Pink Ribbon Breakfast Campaign for the second year in a row.

“Having taken part in Pink Ribbon Breakfasts last year, I know how much fun these gatherings can be, and also how worthwhile. It’s a fantastic chance to share vital information about breast health while raising much-needed money for a great cause.”

Evangelia Henderson, chief executive at Breast Cancer Foundation NZ, said the funds raised will help support New Zealand research into breast cancer. “We have great researchers doing cutting-edge work in this country, but often there’s simply not enough money to take their work forward to clinical trials,” she says. Funds will also help support patients by offering advice, counselling, physiotherapy and rehabilitation.

With more than 600 women a year still dying of breast cancer, there is no let-up in the need for research and support. “Breast cancer patients deserve all the support they can get while enduring what can be grueling treatment, and we are able to make a real difference in many patients’ lives,” Mrs Henderson says.



“Meanwhile, we must relentlessly push for scientific breakthroughs. Without research there will be no progress.

“We are also funding a breast cancer national register which tracks patient treatment and outcomes. This register will help us compare patterns and trends across New Zealand, and against the rest of the world, to help identify areas for improvement,” she says.

“We want Kiwi women to have the best possible treatment, and both research and support are a huge part of that,” said Evangelia Henderson. “So, please, host a breakfast – your help will make a real difference.”
