Fete 9-4pm

As part of the annual McAlister Community Fete and Breast Cancer Awareness Month, 100 pink lady silhouettes will be on display to recognise the effect that breast cancer has on our local community and provide an opportunity for people to come and write their words of remembrance, hope and inspiration on a free tribute tag to display on one of the pink lady silhouettes and stand with others at a short ceremony.

Every day 48 Australian women learn they have breast cancer and seven will lose their lives to the disease.

Local organiser and BCNA Member Group - Sutherland Shire Breast Cancer Support Group says it’s important to recognise the impact of breast cancer on not only the woman diagnosed but all those around her.

Each time a woman hears she has breast cancer, those around her in the community are also affected. Support for women diagnosed, as well as their families and loved ones is an important issue in our local community.

Breast Cancer Network Australia’s (BCNA) Mini-Field of Women events provide an opportunity for the public come together to pay tribute to all those affected by breast cancer.

This year around 150 men will also be diagnosed with breast cancer.

BCNA CEO Christine Nolan said the event is a powerful way to remind those diagnosed that they are not alone in their breast cancer journey.
