Each year in October, BreastScreen WA invite women to have a free screening mammogram for Breast cancer awareness month. Breast cancer is the most common cancer experienced by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women and the annual health campaign aims to raise awareness about breast cancer and the importance of early detection from mammography screening in reducing deaths from the disease.

BreastScreen WA are holding their annual Picnic in the park for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women on Tuesday October 18 2011 in Kings Park.

BreastScreen WA offer services for Aboriginal women across urban, rural and remote Western Australia, including eight metropolitan clinics and four mobile breast screening services visiting about 100 rural towns every two years.
