Get your breasts checked with BreastScreen Victoria and Goolum Goolum Aboriginal Co-operative.
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 and when treatment is most likely to be successful.
The BreastScreen mobile screening van will be visiting Goolum Goolum Aboriginal Co-operative from Monday 27 November to Wednesday 29 November. Your free breast screen will be done in a culturally safe environment with a female radiographer and will only take 10 minutes.
For more information contact Goolum Goolum Aboriginal Co-operative on (03) 5381 6333.
Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women will receive a FREE beautiful shawl to use during the screening that they can keep afterwards.
The artwork on this beautiful shawl is ‘Titta to Titta’ and is designed by talented Yorta Yorta and Wotjobaluk artist, Kylie Taylor.
“The artwork ‘Titta to Titta’ was inspired by the land surrounding the Wimmera.
The colours represent my favourite places I regularly visit.
Pink is for Pink Lake.
Blue is for open sky.
Yellow is for desert sands.
The birds represent freedom.”
