I had the privilege of helping with the registration. I am the one on the right hugging my lovely friend Debra. On the left is the wonderful Karen who is one of the busiest women I know, has her own health issues, but somehow still found time to do a mountain of work for the cause.
We were also blessed to have the help of these two young men who worked tirelessly and it really did get very busy at times.
Having received and given out help in my life and definitely would prefer to be on the side capable of helping. I posted about this because I want every one to know the single most powerful weapon we have regarding breast cancer today is early detection. Learn how to check your self. Think about it, talk about it and read about it.
The bra walk is about raising awareness and also about raising money There was a good turn out, a lot of money raised and heaps of fun had. Apart from the walk there was great music, prizes, dancing, entertainment, singing and gifts.
The money went to support the Yarra valley ladies and all the great work that is done at the Maroondah breast clinic.
One of the highlights of the day for me was seeing this wonderful painting entitled “sharing the journey” be donated to the Maroondah clinic by artist Tracy Moore . This painting will be hung in the waiting room at the Maroondah breast clinic and hopefully make the people there feel a little better. The painting reminds us we are on our own journey but we are not alone. We have travelling companions. This is a photo of Tracy Moore and some beautiful children, most of whom are hers.
Well that’s all from me about this super good cause and now I want every one to start thinking about what part you can play in next year’s walk. and….. check, check, check.
