Wrapping up Breast Cancer Awareness Month
Someone very close to the Cobbitty Equine team was recently diagnosed with breast cancer, they are in their early 40’s, no signs or symptoms, she is grateful they got it early because she went for her free screening at Breast Screen. She now has a mission for 100 young 40 and over friends to have a mammogram. So have you had yours?

Let us know if you do it so we can add you to the list.

Breast-screen offers a great free service. All you have to do is call 13 20 50 to make an appointment.

Or see your doctor for a referral to a local imaging centre.

Don’t forget we have set up a fundraising page……


A big thank you to those who have donated and a special mention to Maria Furina and Katie Dumesny for their cupcake efforts who collected over $1000 from trainers, owners, drives, stable hands and harness racing participants.

💕  Thanks so much for all your support, we hope we have done our part in raising just a little bit of awareness and encourage those around us to get regular checks!
