GENEROUS LOCALS RAISE OVER $1,100 FOR NATIONAL BREAST CANCER FOUNDATION
Local residents raised $1,166 for the National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF) at Michelle Rowland MP’s annual Pink Ribbon Morning Tea.
Michelle holds the morning tea each year to raise crucial funds to support cancer research.
Representatives from the NBCF, WentWest Inc. and Westmead Breast Cancer Institute encouraged guests to be proactive in their healthcare and get screened regularly. Knitted Knockers – who knit cotton prostheses for women following mastectomies – also encouraged guests to join their knitting club to support survivors.
“Thank you to the over 70 locals who gave generously at the morning tea”, Michelle Rowland said.
“Breast cancer is an insidious disease that has touched so many lives – including my own. We all want to help the National Breast Cancer Foundation find a cure”.
“Morning teas like these raise important funds, but they also raise awareness”.
“Women – as mothers, daughters and wives – are great at caring for others but often put themselves last. Check in with your family, friends and colleagues, and encourage them to put their health first’.
“Special mention goes to the Kings Langley Lions Club, who again helped by selling merchandise and raffle tickets”.
