Pink in the Tropics is a breast cancer support group in the Douglas Shire which aims to help women feel less isolated during their breast cancer journey. Pink in the Tropics was formed by a group of Douglas Shire women who have been diagnosed with breast cancer and undergone varying treatments. We exchange information and further our education on issues arising from breast cancer diagnosis.
INFORM: We provide information gained through our own breast cancer journey and referral to appropriate pamphlets, booklets, publications, websites and agencies.
SUPPORT: The group is driven by women who have themselves experienced breast cancer and can offer support through their empathy to others on the Journey. We are currently establishing our Pink Care Program to provide some domestic help for local women in the Douglas Shire.
