Tickled Pink: Cabrini Breast Cancer Care Luncheon a Great Success

The 2019 Cabrini Breast Cancer Care Luncheon was held last Friday, 11 October, at the stunning Carousel overlooking Albert Park Lake. The event was a vibrant occasion, raising important funds for Cabrini Breast Cancer Services.

 

Over 250 patients, family members, friends, oncology specialists and Cabrini staff enjoyed a three-course lunch while hearing a panel discussion addressing the theme of Inspiration from three different points of view:

  • the patient                         (fundraiser and advocate Natalie McGregor);
  • the clinician                        (Cabrini specialist Prof Gary Richardson OAM); and
  • the family member         (award winning author Kellie Curtain)

 

Guests enjoyed a balloon pop, flower-wall photo booth, silent auction and raffle drawn by our lovely breast care nurses, along with beautiful food and wine thanks to Dalfarras Wine and Meredith Dairy.

 

The feeling in the room was one of inspiration and gratitude, while many patients reconnected with those who have looked after them at Cabrini.

 

Thank you to Cabrini Foundation for organising the event and to the wonderful breast care staff for their dedicated service to our patients.
