All things in the pink for fundrais­ing

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Near You -

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.
