All things in the pink for fundraising
St John of God Subiaco Hospital (SJGSH) staff chose bright pink scrubs over their usual blue for Pink Ribbon Day. Surgeons, nurses, orderlies and clerical staff raised $2005 for women’s cancers by buying pink scrubs and matching surgical caps last week. A SJGSH spokeswoman said staff made pinkthemed cakes and sweet treats for a morning and afternoon tea. “It was a really nice atmosphere - everyone was buzzing,” the spokeswoman said. The hospital is undertaking four breast cancer research projects, expected to be completed between late 2015 and 2020.
