This program involves raising awareness among Aboriginal women about breast cancer. One event to facilitate this is the successful national Pink ribbon day. Picnic in the park is a Pink ribbon day event where information is shared among Aboriginal women about the importance of mammograms and being breast aware. The day also includes hearing positive stories from breast cancer survivors. The program is driven by BreastScreen WA in conjunction with a number of organisations which can vary from year to year.
