BreastScreen Victoria with DDACL
October 25, 2022 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pmFree
Get your breasts checked with Dandenong & District Aborigines Co-operative Limited and BreastScreen Victoria
Details: Tuesday 25 October
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.
Dandenong & District Aborigines Co-operative Limited are coordinating group bookings for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community members to attend the mobile breast screen van which will be located at Palm Plaza, Dandenong.
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.
As part of the Beautiful Shawl Project, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women will receive a FREE beautiful shawl designed by talented Community artists to use during the screening that they can keep afterwards.

Artwork Story: Our journeys are many but our travelling path leads us back to Mother Earth, connecting us to Her Spiritual Being. Stand barefoot on Our Ancestral homelands, lay down beneath the Scared Birthing Tree that stands tall with deep roots into Mother Earth. Listen to the songlines, welcome in a new dawn, and new beginnings.
