Women in south Auckland are invited to get free advice about breast health next week.

Specialist nurses will be available to chat on board the Breast Cancer Foundation NZ's iconic pink caravan Pinkie.

Pinkie will be at the following sites from 9 am to 2.30 pm each day:

Countdown, Pukekohe South on March 22, Pak'nSave, Pukekohe on March 23 and New World Papakura on March 24.

Emilie Petitdemange, Breast Cancer Foundation NZ’s Pink Caravan Coordinator said Pinkie goes on an annual education tour around New Zealand and the foundation was thrilled to be visiting south Auckland this month.

"It's a great chance to talk about mammograms, get advice about checking your breasts, and learn how you can reduce your breast cancer risk. "

One of Pinkie’s star attractions is Bessie, a life-like torso which shows the visible signs of breast cancer.

"Many women are often surprised to learn what a lump actually feels like, so we urge everyone to come along and find out for themselves," Petitdemange said.

Last year Pinkie was adapted to be Covid-safe, meeting social distancing and hygiene requirements, with face masks and disposable gloves available to visitors.

About 335 people are diagnosed with breast cancer in Counties Manukau DHB area every year, and about 50 will die from it, she said.

“Our breast nurses are trained professionals who can give expert advice about symptoms, treatments, support groups and post-surgery options.

"Anyone who can’t visit Pinkie in person is welcome to call our free nurse advice line on 0800 BC NURSE (0800 226 8773)."
