The Canadian Breast Cancer Network (CBCN) is a national voluntary organization dedicated to providing a national link between all groups and individuals concerned about malignancies of the breast (breast cancer). Established in 1994, the Network is also committed to representing the concerns of all Canadians affected by or at risk for breast cancer. The CBCN has several objectives including communicating with, supporting, and informing organizations and individuals in Canada who are concerned about breast cancer; promoting education and awareness about breast cancer at the national level; and working to focus national attention on breast cancer and ensure that the concerns of affected Canadians influence research and health care policy decisions. The Canadian Breast Cancer Network works to fulfill its mission and objectives by offering position papers on current breast cancer issues; providing consumer participation and expertise for researchers, research panels, conferences, government-sponsored initiatives, and the media; collaborating with other national groups; and advocating for full participation and voting rights for breast cancer survivors/consumers on scientific peer review panels. The Network's programs and services also include responding to telephone and e-mail requests for information about breast cancer; providing referrals to appropriate resources and organizations; responding to requests from the media; and representing breast cancer survivors and providing speakers at breast cancer events across Canada and internationally. The Canadian Breast Cancer Network also has a web site on the Internet and publishes a national bulletin entitled "The Network News" that facilitates networking at the grassroots level and features key partnerships, issues, and events in the national breast cancer community.
