Breast Cancer Awareness Event at D’Aria

The 5th October saw 350 ladies all dressed as a “Pink Diva” arrive at D’Aria for a day of fun and entertainment.

This yearly event hosted by Die Son Newspaper, focussed on breast cancer awareness this year and invited Bergman Ross & Partners Radiologists to partner with them in their campaign to spread awareness especially in the month of October being breast cancer awareness month.

On arrival each person received a juice and muffin from McDonalds and then spent time visiting all the vendor stands.

Once seated, a moment was taken for the reason we were all there and Yvette Hechter and Jozene Fredericks from BRP presented a powerful presentation on breast care, breast cancer awareness, signs and symptoms and how to do monthly breast self -examinations.

Then the music started and all enjoyed the entertainment by PJ Twins, Robyn Peters, Eon Le Roux, Don Vino Prins, Tye Platinum as well as the cast of Suidooster who just happened to be in the house.

Salome made a guest appearance followed by the late Taliep Petersen’s daughter Jawaahier Petersen who gave a stunning vocal performance. This certainly got the crowd on their feet and dancing. At the end of the day each lady received a chocolate in the shape of the bra and although lots of fun was had, the message of breast cancer awareness was certainly very clear and all left with new knowledge and power to tackle this disease. A fabulous day all in all.
