There were many shades of pink at Griffith Central’s Pink Ribbon Breakfast on Thursday at Peeches Coffee Lounge, held to raise money for Griffith Breast Cancer Support Group.
Griffith Central’s manager Cheryl Wood was thrilled with the turn out for the event, with community members and businesses showing up in pink to support the charity.
“We all had a wonderful morning, and the Griffith Breast Cancer Support Group all had breakfast here and really enjoyed it, and they really enjoyed the morning. Students from Marian Catholic College came to help as well, and the staff at Peeches were all amazing and did a wonderful job,” Cheryl said.
October is Australia’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and provides an opportunity for everyone to focus on breast cancer and its impact on those affected by the disease in our community.
Breast cancer remains the most common cancer among Australian women (excluding non-melanoma skin cancer).
Survival rates continue to improve in Australia with 89 out of every 100 women diagnosed with invasive breast cancer now surviving five or more years beyond diagnosis.
“It’s the second time we’ve held the breakfast, because October for us is Breast cancer awareness month, and has been for ten years, so we thought this time at the end of the months every year, we would celebrate the end of the month,” Cheryl said.
