A quick trip to Barcaldine!

So we are back from a 2200km trip to Barcaldine. A long way to go to attend a workshop but worth every minute of the trip. The Breast & Prostate Cancer Association of QLD run rural workshops to educate men and women about these cancers, their occurrences and treatment options. We have been very proud to have been asked along for many of these events.

Mark & I have travelled to St George, Biloela, Mt Isa, Warwick, Charleville etc for these events and the ladies are always very happy and appreciative of the effort that goes into them.

On this trip apart from myself talking about what we do at Spirit of Life, we also had a breast surgeon, oncologist, men's health specialist doctor, psychologist, dietician and breast care nurses too. Because of the weight of the products we take to display, flying is not an option so Mark drives us out there in our Holden. Here are some pictures of the trip.

Breakfast at Barcaldine on day 2 of the drive!

All set up so very early in the morning!

Very attentive ladies indeed.

The team of presenters and organisers.

Even got 10 minutes to see the tree of knowledge!

To the nurses from Rockhampton, Emerald and Barcaldine.. what a dedicated bunch of professionals you are. I am really humbled to be there with you and the Doctors. And to the people of the West.. thank you so much for the warm hospitality you showed us all. An amazing place to visit and I highly recommend that you consider a drive out to QLD's far west to enjoy all of it for yourself.

The locals will make you feel very welcome.

Now back to the Boutique as our September newsletter mails this week... keep an eye out for it!
