Breast Care Talk Aims to Keep Ladies in the Pink

A FUND-RAISER with an upbeat and fun, educational theme will be held in a support of the Pink Ladies as part of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

The free event is for local women who wish to learn more about breast health.

Two experts will be speaking on the matter, lead cancer nurse and nurse specialist at the breast unit, Karen Leach and hormone health expert Alyssa Burns-Hill.  ‘During Breast Cancer Awareness Month, many women start to think about their breasts and some are often concerned that having lumpy breasts is a precursor to breast cancer,’ said Mrs Burns-Hill.

Tender, lumpy breasts in themselves are not an indicator of increased risk, she said.

The speakers hope to empower women with better knowledge on the subject, said Mrs Burns-Hill.

‘This will be a light-hearted event aimed at alleviating the concerns of women but also giving them the right information when it comes to better breast health,’ she said.

The fund-raiser will start with a glass of pink champagne for each lady in the hope of setting the tone for a celebration of womanhood.

A number of local companies will be providing aspects of support for the event and supplying various raffle prizes for everyone to win.

The event will start at 7pm on Wednesday in the Harry Bound Room at Les Cotils.

A pink balloon and poster can be picked up from Bonboniera to advertise the event at places of work.
