BALDIVIS resident Chris Boyd and his family will be Raising the Bra and warming up their vocal cords for a good cause.
The family is banding together and using its musical talents in preparation for Breast Cancer Care WA’s Purple Bra Day.
Mr Boyd will be playing the guitar and his children Molly and Ben will sing at Stockland Baldivis to raise awareness of breast cancer and to encourage people to donate.
The family knows better than most the impact breast cancer can have on loved ones – Lindsay Boyd was diagnosed last July.
“It was like getting hit by a bolt of lightning,” Mr Boyd said.
“Breaking the news to our kids was extremely tough, and looking after Lindsay while juggling both our jobs wasn’t easy either. We’ve had tears, laughter, sleepless nights and amazing support.”
Mr Boyd said breast cancer was a scary scenario for people and families to experience.
“If I can give something back to Breast Cancer Care WA through Purple Bra Day, then my family and I will feel like we may have helped someone else on their journey,” he said.
“Getting a routine mammogram or one at the earliest opportunity is vital and could save a life too.”
