Breast Cancer Care WA Walking With Angels
Once again, Solo Films was asked to make a video for the 2015 Breast Cancer Care WA Long Table Lunch. This year we met four incredible women who have been or are going through the breast cancer journey. With the assistance of Breast Cancer Care WA, the “Mandurah Angels”, a breast cancer support group in Mandurah, started with just two ladies in the support group. Now they are supporting over 40 women and families. This video emphasises the need for support for women who have just been diagnosed, are in the middle of their treatment or are coming out of the end of treatment. The four women, Jane, Sorja, Yolanda and Jenny are strong, passionate and simply beautiful with their desire to help others through the roller coaster journey of breast cancer while they, themselves, live through their own journey.
Every dollar raised from the day goes towards providing free personalised practical, emotional and financial support to those affected by breast cancer right here in WA. The day showcased gourmet delights using some of Western Australia’s best produce, plus award winning beverage service and the day truly captured the community spirit with everything under the enormous marquee being donated by local businesses and individuals really getting behind the Breast Cancer Care WA celebration.
The Celebration of Women Long Table Lunch was established by Faith Nichols of Comestibles in 2004 to commemorate the life of Pippin Bath, a prominent member of the Perth catering industry who lost her battle with breast cancer at only 37 years of age. 12 years later, it is Breast Cancer Care WA’s signature fundraising event where the food is a work of art delivered by top WA chefs, the produce of the highest quality and the company second to none. It is a day to be fabulous, indulge with friends and join us in taking a moment to support those on a breast cancer journey. The luncheon epitomises the spirit, generosity and giving of the WA community as every item; from the marquee and furniture down to the butter and teaspoons, is donated to ensure that every dollar raised goes directly to help support Western Australians with breast cancer.
