Cancer Awareness

Cancer is not just an October matter, Cancer is an everyday reality. In September we saw awareness aimed at children’s Cancer, this month is pretty in pink for Breast Cancer and in November we will see hues of blue for Movember in aid of Testicular Cancer. We are always trying to take care of those affected by, struggling with, surviving and/or beating Cancer.

PE Pearls Ladies Circle No. 19 painted our Facebook page pink for Pink Ribbon Day on Tuesday 13th October 2020 to show our support for Breast Cancer.

On Wednesday 14th October 2020, while partaking in the APD Wheelchair Wednesday, PE Pearls LC19 rolled into CHOC Childhood Cancer Foundation to drop off a Wii game console and some game cartridges that were donated to us by a member of the community. This should keep some little souls occupied and happy while undergoing their treatment, and will hopefully be a welcome distraction.

LC19 also donated a couple of various items (pens, soothing creams and soaps), sponsored to us by 2 Frogs Agency distribution company, to the WithLuv Cancer Care Bag Project to be included in their goody bags. WithLuv aim to provide 20 of these gift bags (both male and female versions) per month, to patients diagnosed with cancer. Please email to find out more about this project and how you too can assist WithLuv with any donations.
