FIRIES FIRE UP FOR PINK IN THE TROPICS
Members of the not-for-profit charity Pink in the Tropics are encouraging women who have breast cancer to approach them for assistance if they need it. Secretary Andrea Gard explained that women of Pink in the Tropics are there to support women with breast cancer by helping organise cleaning, gardening and shopping. “When people go through chemo it takes a lot out of you,” said Ms Gard. “We’re here to support them in any way.” The local charity has supported dozens of women over the years, and is made up of women who have had breast cancer. “Family can give you sympathy – women who have gone through it can give you empathy.” The Mossman Fire and Rescue team support Pink in the Tropics by helping raise awareness for the charity.
