Enjoy some photos from the IGAD Sisters on Steel ride for a cause in celebration of International GYN Awareness Day.
International Gynaecological Awareness Day 2017 event at King Edward Memorial Hospital:
A wonderful display at King Edward Memorial Hospital for women in Western Australia where I was invited to be one of the judges. Just imagine how it would feel for the women undergoing GYN health surgery to see the fun displays to help them heal better.
Great to see GAIN Inc. and Perth Sisterhood Support group collaborating with a display in foyer of the Hospital.
I had the privilege of donating quilts and wall hangings kindly created by WA Quilters Assoc.
I also, want to highly commend the artist from the Genetics department who created this magnificent poster.
It was a wonderful experience to be part of the Graylands Hospital Women’s Health Festival event yesterday. What a fabulous positive team at Graylands Hospital, with the event coordatinator, Petra Elias pulling together a wonderfully supported event that had so many different stalls, including our Gynaecological and Sexual Health Awareness stall.
The staff and inpatients at the hospital entered into the spirit of the day, with many donning garden nymph styled crowns (see photo below) and entering into the theme of the garden. Anderson Hall was transformed from a typical country-style community hall into the magical playground of a beautiful garden.
Here are some pics from the day…was lovely to also be supported by Women Can International Inc, with Toni Maher (Vice Chairperson) and Hayley Solich (Chairperson) travelling with me and helping to drag all the stuff in. Love Women Can! Special thanks to Women Can International Inc who will be assisting me with the management of the funds raised at our Bike Rally this weekend.
Love this video by Dr Gemma Sharp on Labioplasty and the difference between a vagina and a vulva. Well worth a watch!
It is so exciting to see a young doctor speaking the same messages that I have been trying to get heard for the last 20 years. So wonderful to see someone educating women on this really important topic.
As seen on Facebook.
Thanks for all the support from the Noranda Craft Group who today helped to create some more Moulin Rouge undies for our Undies for Better Understanding campaign.
Sometimes I feel that the load gets a bit heavy and all it takes is a morning session with these girls, having a giggle and a coffee, for me to feel the burden lift and the joy return.
If anyone is willing to take some of these undies and put them up in shop windows around the city or to take them to work and put them on the fridge or on display in the reception area and to start conversations, I would LOVE to have a chat with you.
I am looking for a team of volunteers to work with me in the weeks leading up the International Gynaecological Awareness Day on 10 Sept to assist me to get the undies up all around the city.
Let’s make Perth the Moulin Rouge undies capital of the world.
And if you are not in Perth, but would like to help to promote Gynaecological Awareness, can I encourage you to buy a pack from our store, and find a shop window near you to display them.
If you put up some undies, please take a selfie and send them to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
