October is Breast Cancer Awareness month

October, Australia’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month, provided an opportunity for us all to focus on breast cancer and its impact on those affected by the disease in our community.

For the breast cancer awareness month of October IRG held some fundraisers to contribute to this great cause, these were morning teas and a raffle of baskets made up from donations from the IRG staff.

The baskets were on display at our sites in Wollongong and Shellharbour and many of the tickets were bought by patients attending the sites. One of the prize baskets was won by one of our patients the other two going to staff members.

Barb and Leanne (Pictured above) presented a cheque to Emma (Pictured above) one of the managers for Cancer Council Southern area NSW for $1000 for the fundraising money raised.

Thanks to all the IRG staff and patients/visitors who contributed to this cause.
