An Invitation to Celebrate and Wear Pink
Rebbitzin Tanya arranged An Evening of Inspiration and Empowerment with help from some of the ladies in the community in aid of Secondary1st. All those coming to her Breast Cancer Awareness Event were invited to celebrate and wear pink, and learn more about breast cancer. Tanya, an advanced practice radiographer for the NHS Royal Free NHS Trust, was joined by Emily, an NHS speciality doctor in the Harringay Islington Gynaecology service. They talked about the importance of breast screening and the mammogram process. They then spoke about implants and pacemakers before describing the best self-examination techniques and the symptoms to watch out for. They went on to talk about the significance of the BRCA gene and its possible mutations. There was time to enjoy some pink food and the winners of the 56 fabulous raffle prizes were picked. The evening was a great success and both very informative and most enjoyable.
