They’re some of the Valley’s bravest, and today local breast cancer survivors proved that even further by strutting their stuff on the catwalk in front of a large audience.
The Nambucca Valley Cancer Support Group Inc. held their annual fashion parade today at the Macksville Ex-Services Club to raise much-needed funds for breast cancer research and survivor and family support.
Millers generously provided the clothes for the event and Woolworths chipped in with bouquets of roses for the occasion.
The summer fashions were all modelled by members of the support group who have each valiantly fought their own battles with the most common cancer affecting women today.
The ladies also had a special helper.
Harry, who is a two-year survivor of breast cancer, was the perfect gentlemen and made sure the ladies descended gracefully down the staircase.
150 men, along with 17,000 women, are diagnosed with breast cancer each year in Australia.
The Nambucca Valley Cancer Support Group Inc. meets on the first Monday of every month from 10am to 12pm at the Cancer Resource Centre in the Macksville Hospital with the first meeting for 2018 next February.
