SSMRF CEO joins volunteers to make cushions of support for breast cancer survivors

“A whole bunch of soft, pink pillows were made and gathered by a group of ladies, who again made it their mission to provide a helping hand to breast cancer survivors.

As part of an annual project, Zonta Club Botany Bay donated more than 1000 breast cancer support cushions to patients receiving treatment at hospitals.

St George and Sutherland Medical Research Foundation Chief Executive Pam Brown recently joined volunteers to produce the cushions.

She helped deliver 30 of the cushions to St George Hospital’s Breast Cancer Nurse Tanya, who said they will go straight to patients who need them.”
