We went mile to Miles!

Just back from a weekend in Miles on the Western Darling Downs. The Breast & Prostate Cancer Association does annual workshops in rural areas of Qld to educate women (and now men) on important health issues. Namely breast and prostate cancer. This event was well attended and speakers included breast surgeon Dr Chris Pyke (in the photo with me) , mens' health expert Dr Toby Ford, Dr Jane Talbot a phsychiatrist who works with women and other specialists including physiotherapists, breast care nurses and me. Workshops like this are important and at Spirit of Life Boutique we we are very happy to continue to support our rural sisters along side the BPCAQ on their country trips. I spoke about the Government Medicare rebate for new prostheses as well as explaining just what it is we do at Spirit of Life Boutique. We are not a department store that also sells prostheses along with womens' fashion, mens' fashion and white goods! No way. Looking after women who have been through the anguish of breast cancer is all we do We're passionate about it and we love being there for our special ladies. Til next time. Debra
