PA Turning Pink this October

26 September 2019

In support of Breast Cancer Awareness Month this October, PA is turning pink!

Staff, students, patients, everyone at PA is being encouraged to wear pink on Wednesdays until the end of the month in recognition of the world-class care and research available for our breast cancer patients right here at the PA Hospital.

Acting Clinical Facilitator of the Division of Cancer Services, Courtney Rawson, and her team came up with the idea to support their patients through Project Pink.

“2E was keen to get behind Breast Cancer Awareness month, we just couldn’t decide on an idea, that was until Mean Girls was quoted,

“We think the ‘on Wednesday’s we wear pink’ theme will take off across the hospital and are looking forward to see the support breast cancer research through the PA Research Foundation gets as a result,” she said.

Luke Cridland, Community Fundraising Coordinator at the PA Research Foundation, is proud to see the PA embracing Project Pink for Breast Cancer Awareness Month. 

“It’s a great opportunity to spotlight Project Pink, and the incredible research happening in this space on the campus, while also continuing to raise awareness for breast cancer and its impact on those affected within our community”

To kick off the month, Cupcake Crayzee cupcakes will be on sale October 2nd from 7am and Project Pink polo shirts are available from the PA Research Foundation office for a donation.

Don’t forget, it’s soo fetch to wear pink.
