Car­ing for the girls ev­ery­day

The Western Star - - News -

DRESSED in pink, en­joy­ing mino-sas and paint­ing mas­ter­pieces, dozens of women came to­gether to talk about their most im­por­tant pair of pals — their breasts. Oc­to­ber was Breast Can­cer Aware­ness Month, and Naya Green­wood from Mara­noa Re­gional Coun­cil hosted a brunch, where she pre­sented facts, com­piled with the help of lo­cal breast care nurse Lisa Bow­man, to stress the im­por­tance of self­ex­am­i­na­tions, and know­ing your body.

If you have no­ticed changes in your breasts, make sure you talk to your GP.
