Beanie Day for Brain Cancer

July 24, 2015

It’s expected to be raining this coming Thursday and Friday so what better way to cover up your frizzy rainy day hair then by wearing a beanie – and it will be for a great cause.

Bingara Community Health Nurses, Bingara MPS Staff along with the staff and doctors at Bingara Medical Centre and Bingara Pharmacy are encouraging all to get involved in Brain Cancer Awareness week by wearing a beanie this coming Thursday or Friday.

“We are encouraging everyone to wear a beanie for Brain Cancer Day and make a gold coin donation to go towards Brain Cancer Research.” said Community Health Nurse, Tiffany Galvin.

Brain cancer is the least understood cancer in Australia, despite being one of the most fatal and this is a great opportunity to get involved to raise greater awareness.

Many people are unaware that Brain Cancer is the leading cancer killer for young people under the age of 39 and children under 10, yet receives very little research funding. One devastating statistic is that in it’s malignant form, Brain Cancer is almost 100% fatal.

Get involved in a great cause by wearing a beanie this Thursday or Friday. Donations can be left at the Bingara Pharmacy, MPS, Medical Centre and the Gwydir Shire Council.
