Pink Ladies Lunch on hold

PinkLadiesLogoLovely ladies that enjoy the popular Pink Ladies lunch – organiser Maree Van Oirschot has announced due to unanticipated circumstances, the lunch has been postponed. Maree says, ” We look forward to planning something around Mother’s Day next year.”

In the interim, keen to help the cause, the Rainbow Beach Sports Club have advised that there will be a new event later this year for cancer prevention. They say to watch this space – it will be a fundraiser for women and men.

Attention: Coastal Ladies
Beautiful You Cancer Charity Inc. is hosting a Beautiful You morning for women going through the journey of cancer, with skin care , makeup and more. The day starts at 9.30 am at Tin Can Bay Physiotherapy, Friday September 5, and is all complimentary. Please contact Debbie to book: 0409480250 More information:

Maree asks, “If you can donate in any way to any of the cancer organisations – please do and be vigilant and aware of any changes in your body.”

BreastScreen Queensland Sunshine Coast Service Medical Director Dr Deborah Pfeiffer said, “It is important to remember that 9 out of 10 women diagnosed with breast cancer have no family history of the disease and it is vital that all women heed messages about the importance of having a regular breast screen.”

Continuing research shows that more women are now surviving a diagnosis of breast cancer than in the past.

“This can be attributed to the early detection of breast cancer and improvements in management, treatment and advances in drug therapy,” Dr Pfeiffer said.

If you missed the recent BreastScreen van in Tin Can Bay, remember all women aged 40 years and over are eligible for a free breastscreen every two years. Women aged 50-74 years are particularly encouraged to attend.

“…two yearly breast cancer screening is still the best way to find breast cancer early – well before a women or her doctor can feel anything.”

BreastScreen Queensland Services are the only nationally-accredited breast cancer screening services in Queensland. The mobile van has the same state-of-the-art equipment as permanent sites.

Dr Pfeiffer said regular two yearly breast cancer screening is still the best way to find breast cancer early – well before a women or her doctor can feel anything.

Appointments are one-on-one with specially trained female health professionals and breastscreens are read independently by two doctors.

Permanent free breastscreening services at Gympie and the Sunshine Coast throughout the year. Call 13 20 50 to make an appointment.
