BREAST cancer awareness was the motivation behind Ellenbrook residents turning Main Street pink last Friday.
Several local businesses chipped in to supply items for the fundraiser auctions, raising more than $2500 towards breast cancer research.
Breast cancer survivor Sue Dickenson also attended, offering some poignant advice to people to make an effort to talk to people living with cancer.
“If any of your friends or family has cancer, the worst thing you can do is ignore them,” she said.
Pearce MHR and Minister for Social Services Christian Porter also attended the Pink Ribbon Long Table Morning Tea with his baby Lachlan and wife Jennifer.
“Having had my own mother fight and survive breast cancer in her 60s, I know first-hand the impact that this disease has and I commend the efforts that (co-ordinator) Mandy O’Brien has gone to in arranging this Pink Ribbon fundraiser and the support that the local community has shown, ” he said.
