Pink Caravan back in Eastern Bay

What does a breast lump feel like? Women in Eastern Bay of Plenty will have the chance to find out when the Breast Cancer Foundation NZ’s iconic Pink Caravan comes to town.

With the use of a breast model, the BCFNZ Pink Caravan nurses offer women a free hands-on way to learn what they should be feeling for when self-checking.

The caravan also has visual displays of breast cancer symptoms that most women won’t have seen before.

The van will be parking in areas including Opotiki, Whakatane, Kawerau and Murupara from this week.

Manager Dianne Swann says the Eastern Bay is still considered a "hot spot" for low screening.
