The Cindy Mackenzie Breast Cancer Foundation Incorporation was a not-for-profit organisation launched on April 24, 2007. The Foundation was founded by the late Cindy Mackenzie’s passionate group of family and friends. The Foundation supported more than 350 women living with breast cancer and their families for eight years - an amazing effort for a small grassroots charity run by volunteers.
Following the announcement of The Sunshine Coast Private Hospital’s new Breast Clinic in 2014, members of Cindy Mackenzie Breast Cancer Foundation Board approached the hospital about the possibility of working together to develop an expanded program of services. Further discussions between hospital executives and the Foundation board members over several months led to an agreement to transfer the Foundation’s operations and assets to the hospital in September 2015.
The Foundation is extremely grateful for the support offered by local individuals, businesses, schools, sporting organisations, church groups and the media, as well as volunteers who rattled donations tins each year.
