Mini-field of women to pay tribute to those affected by breast cancer

Mini-field of women
The community is invited to take part in this year’s Mini-Field of Women event at Westmead Hospital.

Dozens of Pink Lady silhouettes are set to scatter the lawn inside Westmead Hospital on Tuesday, October 3 as the Westmead Breast Cancer Institute (BCI) hosts its third annual Mini-Field of Women event.

The display will be in the courtyard near the Crown Princess Mary Cancer Centre and aims to give the public an opportunity to pay tribute to those affected by breast cancer.

People affected by breast cancer, along with their families, friends and Westmead Hospital staff will see 100 Pink Lady silhouettes and one Blue Man silhouette on display to symbolise the women and men affected by breast cancer each year in Australia.

Attendees are invited to leave a personal message on the silhouettes and join the BCI team for morning tea.

Westmead Hospital breast care nurse Jenny Cooper said the event was a great way to connect people affected by breast cancer.

“I encourage people to come along and take part in this event.

“It’s an opportunity to speak with others and show support for those who may have had a similar experience.”

The Westmead display is a local version of the Breast Cancer Network Australia’s annual Field of Women event and will be held as part of the BCI’s monthly support group Best Breast Friends.

The Mini-Field of Women will be held from 10.30am to 12pm.

The community is invited to participate.
