Federal Member for Blaxland, Jason Clare MP is supporting the National Breast Cancer Foundation by hosting a Pink Ribbon Day Breakfast with The Coffee Club at Centro Bankstown.
The Pink Ribbon Day Breakfast to be held on Saturday, 22 October from 9:30am to12 noon will help raise much needed funds for breast cancer research. There will be free entertainment for the kids and lucky door prizes.
“Wear something pink and join me at The Coffee Club for a very special Pink Ribbon Day Breakfast and together we can help raise awareness for Australian women and their families,” Mr Clare said.
Breast cancer is the most common cancer among Australian women. This year alone approximately 14,000 women will be diagnosed with this terrible disease and tragically 2,500 women will lose their battle with cancer.
“Cancer affects the lives of all people, I urge you to join me and raise money for a cure for what is an indiscriminate and terrible disease,” Mr Clare said.
“We are excited to be involved and hope to see the local community come along to make the Pink Ribbon Day Breakfast a success,” The Coffee Club’s Lorraine Kassem said.
Cancer survivor and NSW Cancer Council volunteer, Mrs Barbara Gill is also encouraging people to get involved in Pink October.
“Events like Jason Clare’s Pink Ribbon Day Breakfast are running throughout the month of October. Get involved and help raise money for breast cancer research”, Mrs Gill said.
