She Shares luncheon

Local women with an increased risk of breast and ovarian cancer are invited the next Pink Hope ‘She Shares’ event to be held at the picturesque Providence Gully venue at Sandon this Sunday November 17.

Pink Hope provides support to women and families that are at increased risk of developing breast and ovarian cancer due to genetic mutations, or because of strong family histories.

The charity has recently started running the She Shares events, which are designed for high risk women to meet, chat, laugh, cry and just share their stories. 

The first Central Victorian event was held at The Stables in Guildford in May and attracted a handful of local women.

Local Outreach Ambassador and She Shares event organiser Shelley Watson hopes even more women will join them this weekend.

“After undertaking a preventative risk-reducing bilateral mastectomy in 2015, I know how important it is to make connections with women who are in similar situations and how vital these relationships have become and will continue to be throughout my journey,” Shelley said.

Providence Gully have kindly donated the venue for the event and Kristin at the North Kitchen will be catering.

“I encourage local women to join us for a lovely luncheon. It’s a great opportunity to meet and chat to other women in a similar situation,” Shelley said.

To register for the event visit Registration is just $10 and includes the luncheon and a goodie bag. For more information about She Shares contact Shelley on 0438 006 913.
