The NSW Women’s Breast Centre at The Royal helps more than 2,000 women a year from across the state. The women are of all ages. Some have new breast symptoms; are at high risk of breast cancer due to their family history; or have been recently diagnosed with breast cancer.
Bianca Bolch is one of them. With a strong history of breast cancer in her family, Bianca Bolch knew it was vitally important to closely monitor her health with expert care by having regular check-ups at The NSW Women’s Breast Centre. Bianca was keen to take up genetic counselling services at The Royal, helping families understand the implications of their genetic condition and the steps they can take to avoid future health issues.
The Royal was with Bianca every step of the way when a small tumour was picked up. From diagnosis and treatment - including four rounds of chemotherapy and through surgery - a double mastectomy. Now aged just 33, Bianca is part of our Heart for Her campaign helping us raise more funds for women from accross NSW who require care and treatment for cancer treatment at The Royal.
Sarah Yates is one of the hundreds of women who have been cared for by The Royal's perinatal psychologist, Elloise Brake. Sarah had her baby boy Maximus at The Royal in November 2019 and was struggling with depression after a difficult birth and rocky start to motherhood. Nothing about Sarah’s pregnancy and birth had been easy - after a long and difficult birth, Maximus required surgery to repair his appendix and twisted bowel. Sarah found herself physically and emotionally overwhelmed and was prescribed anti-depressants.
15 per cent of women who come through The Royal experience some level of depression and anxiety throughout pregnancy and into the first year of motherhood. Eight per cent suffer moderate to severe clinical depression and anxiety.
Most days, Elloise’s schedule is fully booked. Funded in 2018 by The Royal Hospital for Women Foundation, Elloise is has seen over 140 patients - many of which have testified the benefits that have flowed from their sessions.
A donation to our Heart for Her campaign will help women like Sarah at The Royal when they need it most.
