The Blush committee was formed in 2015 by a group of passionate women. In 2016, we became an incorporated association: Blush Cancer Care Inc. The women behind Blush bring with them their expertise in the fields of: medicine, business, marketing and event management. They are all volunteers and give their time and support to this cause.
Blush also have a strong relationship with both of Toowoomba’s private hospitals: St Vincent’s and St Andrews.
is to raise funds that will enhance the care of breast cancer patients in Toowoomba and the Darling Downs. While it is necessary to devote funding for ongoing research, it’s also important to support those who are in the midst of this illness. Blush is active in supporting patients both at the time of diagnosis and acute care, but also beyond that time when they no longer have constant contact with medical personnel.

Many of us know someone who has been diagnosed , whether it be a family member, a friend, a work colleague or a sporting buddy. Fortunately, breast cancer patients now have longer survival rates. However, the diagnosis brings enormous emotional upheaval for those affected, along with their immediate and extended families.

Although there are many breast cancer fundraising organisations, all doing important work, all money raised or donated to Blush stays right here in the Toowoomba and Darling Downs community, and is used for patient care, education and wellbeing.
As a result of the business and community support since our inception, Blush has been able to introduce new and innovative projects that assist breast cancer patients and their families.
