HUNDREDS of Pink Lady silhouettes will be on display in the Snowy Mountains on Saturday, September 6 in a meaningful show of support for women and families affected by breast cancer.

Every day 41 Australian women learn they have breast cancer and seven lose their lives to the disease.

Breast Cancer Network Australia's (BCNA) Mini-Field of Women events provide an opportunity for the public to pay tribute to all those affected by breast cancer.

"Each time a woman hears she has breast cancer, those around her in the community are also affected. Support for women and families affected by breast cancer is an important issue in the Snowy Mountains community," local organiser of Pink Ladies in the Snow, Helen Blackmore-Lee said.

"Although breast cancer care and knowledge has come a long way, women and men are still being diagnosed who need our help and support. Breast cancer is an issue close to many people and impacts our community," she said.

CEO of BCNA, Maxine Morand, herself a breast cancer survivor, said the event was a powerful reminder that you are not alone on your breast cancer journey.

"This October, around 300 Mini-Field of Women events are being held in local communities right across Australia. These events are a great way to link those people affected by breast cancer with their local community. We hope people participating will find the event moving and enjoy it as a celebration of life."

The Snowy Mountains community is invited to participate in Pink Ladies in the Snow 2014 and to take the opportunity to leave a personal message of support.
