Get your breasts checked with BreastScreen Victoria and VAHS St Albans.
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 VAHS St Albans from Wednesday 16 August to Friday 18 August.
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 and to book your screening contact VAHS St Albans on (03) 9419 3000.
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 designed by talented Wiradjuri and Yorta Yorta artist, Aunty Lynette Briggs.
“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.”
