Currajong Disability Services (CDS) celebrated Pink Ribbon Day last week while also raising some funds for a worthy cause, namely women’s cancer.
A regular event on the CDS calendar, Pink Ribbon Day, generated plenty of interest again this year and was well supported by everyone.
“It was a great day and everyone really got involved and supported it,” said Marketing and Communications Co-ordinator Dane Millerd.
“Pink Ribbon Day is an important day on the calendar and it is a special day here at Currajong.
“It allows us all to recognise and support the special women in our lives who have been affected by cancer. They are our mothers, sisters, grandmothers and daughters and it’s important we all rally around them.” Every day in Australia, around 50 women are told they have breast or a gynaecological cancer. Sadly, every day around 12 Australian women will die from a women’s cancer.
Increase in survivors of breast and gynaecological cancers are thanks to advancements in research and prevention that you help fund by supporting Cancer Council’s Pink Ribbon. The money raised help Cancer Council fight cancer through prevention programs, support services and world-class cancer research.
