Taking on challenge
BREAST Cancer Care WA has appointed a new chief executive.
Zoe McAlpine joins the organisation with nine years experience in the non-profit sector with her most recent role as national head of fundraising for Starlight Children’s Foundation.
Mrs McAlpine was also the original marketing and fundraising manager in 2008 when Breast Cancer Care WA was known as Breast Cancer Foundation of WA.
She aims to lead the charity to further expand its services and support for those affected by breast cancer in WA.
“This is truly an exciting time to be heading up the organisation and I am looking forward to applying my skills and knowledge to lead Breast Cancer Care WA into the future,” Mrs McAlpine said.
“In 2014, over 1500 women were affected by breast cancer in WA and this figure is unfortunately on the increase.
“By creating unique programs and services that are designed for the various stages of a breast cancer journey we will continue to be a place to support anyone affected by breast cancer in WA.”
Mrs McAlpine succeeds former chief executive Donna Rendell who, after seven years at the helm, built the charity into a service provider offering personalised practical, emotional and financial support to people affected by breast cancer in WA.
