Westmead Breast Cancer Institute (Western Sydney)

Sydney Pink Ribbon Motorcycle Ride 2021

Every single day  approximately 55 people will be diagnosed with breast cancer in Australia.  An average 80 percent of new cases of breast cancer are in women aged between 50 or over. In 2020 alone almost 20,000 women were diagnosed with breast cancer. About 1 in 7 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer. The impact of the diagnosis on the lives of breast cancer patients and the families cannot be underestimated, and is lifelong.

The Pink Ribbon Motorcycle Ride is a sponsored charity ride designed to enable the motorcycling community of NSW to join together, enjoy a fantastic ride and raise money to help in the fight against breast cancer. 



The Westmead Breast Cancer Institute is a leader in the provision of comprehensive, state of the art breast cancer management and is the only public centre that provides a comprehensive service covering multidisciplinary breast cancer clinical management, breast cancer research, education, breast cancer screening, a breast imaging/ diagnostic service and follow up. Your contributions will ensure that we continue to strive for excellence for all our patients and lessen the impact of their breast cancer on their lives.

How will the funds be used?

Funds raised will assist Westmead Breast Cancer Institute to provide:

State-of-the-art digital breast screening facilities across Western Sydney
Supportive care program for women affected by breast cancer
Development of educational resources for patients and health professionals
Education for health professionals including breast care nurses to provide specialized care
Provision of the latest evidence based clinical services for the diagnosis and treatment of patients
Research into optimising treatment selection, surgical techniques, diagnostic methods and translational research


Key areas of expenditure this year:

Towards Audio Visual Equipment upgrade for the multidisciplinary meeting room where all clinical specialities, nursing, allied health and researchers meet to discuss the management and diagnosis of breast cancer patients. Every patient is discussed at one of these meetings to ensure that they receive the highest standard and most up to date clinical care, have access to allied health professionals and clinical trials for those who are eligible. These meeting require review of imaging, pathology slides, and teleconferencing facilities which require an update of the old existing technology to  the latest AV technology.
