She will be donning her purple bra and shaking a tin on Friday to raise money for Breast Cancer Care WA.
‘My beautiful sister Desiree battled with a rare form of breast cancer for three years, diagnosed in 2009 and passing away in September 2012,’ she said.
‘During her three-year treatment, Desiree received support in so many ways from Breast Cancer Care WA and I may never repay them for the love and support they gave her,’ Ms Matla said.
The Wanneroo resident also said it was also vital to get the message out to women and men to get screened for the deadly cancer.
‘Go and get tested, insist on having a thorough health check and get diagnosed early,’ she said.
‘If you do this, the worst that can happen is having an early diagnosis and being treatable.’
