AFTER seeing pink ribbons in Hillcrest throughout October, Debbie Cameron, Michelle Seppings and Lynne Fairclough from Debbie Cameron Physiotherapy decided to do something proactive for Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

All three booked mammograms at Hillcrest Private Hospital to support the campaign which promotes “early detection” and “prevention is better than cure”.

Cameron said an important message she would like the upper Highway community to hear is the mantra “cancer can be beaten”.

“As much as we, physiotherapists, can do to prevent this disease, we must. Cancer has such a huge impact on our lives and those of our loved ones, and it is our duty to help by dispensing information that prevents this disease and others like it.

“Physiotherapists are trained to treat, alleviate and assist with recovery from the side-effects of chemotherapy and radiation.

“This year I have seen an increasing number of people come for physiotherapy during and after cancer treatment where their joints and muscle have been impacted, particularly as result of a complication from radiation,’’ says Cameron.
