Tonight some of our Year 9 community students will host a breast cancer awareness session in support of local breast cancer survivors and Breast Cancer Network Australia (BCNA). BCNA is the peak national organisation representing and supporting Australians affected by breast cancer.
People from Yarram and surrounding communities are encouraged to attend, support and donate to this worthwhile cause.
Nearly everyone in the local community has been touched by someone affected by breast cancer.
The guest speaker, Christie, will be sharing her own story and shall be letting attendees know what resources, are available to you as patients, carer, family or friend. At the event entry will be a gold coin donation, a raffle and cupcakes for sale, with all the funds raised during that time going to BCNA.
Providing support for women and families affected by breast cancer is important for our local community. This session is an excellent opportunity for locals to rally together and offer their support to those affected be it our mates, our family, or perfect strangers.’
Funds raised will directly assist BCNA to support Australians personally affected by breast cancer. This support includes providing the My Journey Kit, a free comprehensive information resource for women newly diagnosed with breast cancer.
