💍 Supporting women’s cancer care journey

This red-carpet affair isn’t just for the close-ups and the Tinseltown star quality (although it will be full of both!), it’s to make a real difference for all those women who come to the Mater Hospital in need of cancer care.

Warm-hearted supporters like you have already helped us make so much possible for our sisters needing cancer treatment. From helping make a cutting-edge PET/CT a reality to funding a state-of-the-art mammogram machine and helping give our Breast Health Unit the star make-over treatment, people like you are helping our hospital really shine for people who need it most.

I’d like to introduce you to one of our very own silver-screen stars, Tara ‘Prosecco’ Smith. If ever a woman embodied the meaning of Hollywood glamour…it’s her. But her breast cancer journey has been a difficult one. As she says herself:

“For me, my journey has a destination, it’s a positive destination, but it’s a rocky road. I can come in here knowing that my cancer was removed from my breast successfully, and a ‘dot’ removed from 1 of 4 lymph nodes during the same surgery. My cancer is gone. I am absolutely BLESSED! I know how lucky I am.”

Who would have thought that splashing in the sea in your best retro rigout could make such a difference for women like Tara? But it CAN! We would love to see your name in lights on our Marilyn’s Mater Paddle guestlist. As we always say, will you ‘boop boop be do’ it for Tara, and for each and every woman who comes to the Mater in need of cancer care?
