Know someone who has been affected by breast cancer? Submit a photo in their honor for our special Honor Banner.
We’re calling for pictures of loved ones (family, friends, co-workers) who have been affected by breast cancer to be featured on banners that will be revealed on Go Pink Day: Friday, October 23.
The Honor Banners will be custom-made and proudly displayed at all West Moreton Health Hospitals in conjunction with the Breast Cancer Research Project being fundraised this month.
Breast Cancer Honor Banners will be revealed on Go Pink Day at
- Ipswich Hospital
- Boonah Hospital
- Gatton Hospital
- Laidley Hospital
- Esk Hospital
- The Park (Wacol)
Sending a picture of your loved one is an easy way to honour them in our Hospitals for all visitors to see and to show your support to Go Pink in October for local breast cancer research.
How to submit a photo for the Honor Banner
Where possible, send through high-quality portraits of your loved ones.
Make sure you have permission to submit a photo of your loved one before you submit it.
Supporting local breast cancer research
Alongside the Honor Banners being revealed on Go Pink Day, there are so many great ways to get involved to support of local breast cancer research during October.
The money being raised will support the West Moreton Breast Cancer Research Project to investigate the feasibility of a virtual breast care clinic to support patients following breast cancer surgery.
West Moreton Health’s McGrath Breast Care Nurse Karen Miles said, if adopted, the research would be ground-breaking.
“What we want to do is expand on the existing after-surgery consultations, which focus on physical assessment and symptom management, to provide a comprehensive assessment of patient’s psychosocial health and quality of life,” Ms Miles said.
The Hospital Foundation’s Chief Executive Officer, James Sturges said the local research project aims to deliver local outcomes for local people using local researchers.
“This will make a meaningful difference to the people of West Moreton,” Mr Sturges said.
“I hope individuals, groups and businesses in West Moreton will help us achieve this by supporting the cause by not only sending a photo of your loved one affected by cancer, but also getting involved by purchasing a scoop of our Mystery Go Pink Ice Cream, making a donation, buying our fundraising merchandise online, and joining us to Go Pink on Friday, October 23.”
“It is about local fundraising to support local research to help local people through local services,” Mr Sturges said.
