Beautiful Shawl Project at Murray Valley Aboriginal Co-operative

Murray Valley Aboriginal Co-Op 87 Latje Road, Robinvale

Get your breasts checked with BreastScreen Victoria at Murray Valley Aboriginal Co-operative (MVAC). 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 MVAC Robinvale on 9-10 July, and 16 July. 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 MVAC on 03 5026 3353. Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women will receive a FREE beautiful shawl (below) to use during the screening that they can keep afterwards.The artwork on this beautiful shawl 'Self care & self love' designed by the talented Wiradjuri artist, Kedeasha Jackson. “Take the time to give yourself the long overdue self love and care that your mind, body and soul needs. Embrace your unique imperfections and be proud of the strong black woman you are. The sky is the limit sisters.”
