PDHU encouraging women to spread breast cancer awareness

It’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

To encourage women to go for screenings the Perth District Health Unit is taking part in a contest.

All you have to do is take a picture of you and some family or friends talking about breast cancer screening.

Upload that picture to the South West Regional Cancer Program on Facebook and you could win a $250 gift card to the spa of your choice.

Remember that early detection is critical for successful treatment.
