Get your breasts checked and protect yourself against breast cancer. Put your health centre stage by getting a free breast screen every two years from age 50. Regular breast screens are the best way to find breast cancer early when treatment is most likely to be successful.

With clinics and a mobile screening service across Victoria, you can get your free breast screens in a culturally safe environment with a female radiographer. It will only take 10 minutes.

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women will receive a FREE beautiful shawl featuring the work of talented Yiddi Yiddi Nari Nari Barapa Barapa artist, Lauren Murray (below) to use during the screening that they can keep afterwards.

ARTIST: Lauren Murray (Yiddi Yiddi Nari Nari Barapa Barapa). Titled: "Journey"
