Garden of pink reminders
TWEED women plan to plant rows of bright pink silhouettes in the heart of Murwillumbah later this month to draw attention to the number of locals diagnosed with breast cancer.
The Tweed Brunswick Breast Cancer Support Group yesterday announced plans for the 'mini-field of women' project on the Saturday morning before National Breast Cancer Day on October 25.
Spokeswoman Lianne Johnston said the planting of bright pink silhouettes at the Red Cross Rooms in Knox Park would "provide a visual reminder of the many people in our community diagnosed with breast cancer".
This year the local event would highlight a free information kit available to wom- en newly diagnosed with breast cancer. Ms Johnston said the 'My Journey Kit' was produced by the National Cancer Network and was available to those affected by breast cancer by phoning 1300 785 562. Ms Johnston said activities on Saturday, October 23 would begin with a silent walk at 9.30am from the former State Bank building to Knox Park.
