Next Monday, 22 October, is Pink Ribbon Day. To celebrate, Cancer Council NSW will be painting the town pink, starting today, to show their support for the one in eight Australian women who will be diagnosed with breast cancer by the age of 85.

On the far north coast it is estimated that more than 231 women are diagnosed with breast cancer each year, with more than 39 women tragically losing their lives to this terrible disease.

Cancer Council NSW is the only charity that funds and supports the entire breast-cancer journey, including prevention programs, support services for patients and their families, and world-class research.

You can show your support by purchasing official Pink Ribbon Day merchandise from one of our many locations including Alstonville, Ballina, Bangalow, Murwillumbah, Lennox, Lismore, Tweed, Grafton, Yamba and Pottsville.


Support The Echo

Keeping the community together and the community voice loud and clear is what The Echo is about. More than ever we need your help to keep this voice alive and thriving in the community.

Like all businesses we are struggling to keep food on the table of all our local and hard working journalists, artists, sales, delivery and drudges who keep the news coming out to you both in the newspaper and online. If you can spare a few dollars a week – or maybe more – we would appreciate all the support you are able to give to keep the voice of independent, local journalism alive.
