Locals Encouraged to Join the Fight Against Women's Cancer


Eyre Peninsula residents are being encouraged to join the fight against women's cancer and help support the work of the Harry Perkins Institute of Medical Research.

This month's Women's Cancer Challenge invites Australians to walk a few kilometers each day from September 20 or walk 35 kilometers on Saturday the 26th of September.

Participants will be raising funds for research, including efforts to identify the genetic profile of tumoUrs which could lead to improved treatments for breast and ovarian cancer.

Doctor Louise Winteringham from The Perkins says it's a great opportunity to get fit while contributing to ground-breaking cancer research.
