Treasure Chest Charity is a not-for-profit dedicated to caring, supporting, reconstructing and empowering persons affected by breast cancer. We are an independent volunteer committee based in Melbourne with a mission of improving the access to and quality of breast cancer services.
SPECIAL DONATION PROJECT:
KYLIE AND MICHAEL ARE GETTING MARRIED!
Kylie and Michael are getting married and ask that you consider making a donation to Treasure Chest Charity in lieu of gifts. Treasure Chest Charity is working to fund an Acupuncture Clinic specialising in the treatment of joint pains caused by Aromatase inhibitors (tablets that reduce the risk of recurrence for certain breast cancers). We appreciate your help making a difference improving the overall treatment experience of Breast Cancer patients.
Where do fundraising efforts go?
Each year we look forward to hosting The Treasure Chest Charity Men with Breast Intentions Gala Dinner and Spring Luncheon to raise awareness and funds for our cause.
Our funds go towards the care, reconstruction, support and empowerment of people in the public health system who want to know about options or choose to undergo breast reconstruction after their breast cancer treatment.
We work closely with the Royal Women's Hospital and Royal Melbourne Hospital to provide funds for equipment and resources.
Why we have chosen to help the Shared Breast Services of the Royal Women's and Royal Melbourne Hospitals:
- We recognise the vulnerability of women about to undergo or who are undergoing breast cancer reconstruction.
- Our charter is to provide funds to support services that consider the ‘whole’ person, and by doing so reduce the impact of the disease and its treatment.
- All illnesses have physical and psychological repercussions of some degree, however women who are about to undergo, or who have undergone breast surgery for cancer, are vulnerable to significant feelings of anxiety and loss; of their selfhood (identity), womanhood (sexuality), esteem and capacity to cope…and this is where Treasure Chest's work is most important.
A heartfelt thank you to all who attended the 2017 Treasure Chest Charity Luncheon. We hope you had as much fun as we did!
We are so excited to share that we raised an amazing $45000!
We are absolutely amazed by this result and it could no thave been achieved with your generosity in ticket sales, participating in the Catanache's Raffle, Piper-Heidsieck Champagne purchases, Auction Items and Pledges!
A huge thank you to all our sponsors and all who so generously donated prizes - we couldn't do what we do without you. ❤️
