Cindy's Story

Cindy was very community minded. She was compassionate, warm and caring. She loved people, life and laughter. She had many passions – travel, entertaining, camping, not to mention calling the local radio station to enter just about any competition that was going. Her greatest passion though, was her family and the wonderful weekends and holidays they enjoyed together.

It was during her treatment that Cindy also realised that none of this would have been possible if they, their family and friends, had not had the financial means to make life comfortable and fun even while she was suffering so terribly. It is for this reason that before she passed away Cindy expressed a desire for John to give back to the community that so generously supported Cindy and her family.

As a result, The Cindy Mackenzie Breast Cancer Foundation was born (now The Buderim Private Hospital Cindy Mackenzie Breast Cancer Program). The program honours Cindy’s memory and her desire to give back to the community that so lovingly and warmly supported her. It also reflects Cindy’s strong community spirit and the care she always had for those around her.

We're here for you

The Cindy Mackenzie Breast Cancer Program is available to all Sunshine Coast residents diagnosed with breast cancer – you don't need to be patients of the Buderim Private Hospital.
