Specialist breast cancer surgeon Dr Chantel Thornton will return to Launceston to speak at an International Women’s Day luncheon.
Dr Thornton was born in Devonport, educated in Launceston and is now based in Melbourne.
She is a well-known surgeon with a passion for helping women and raising awareness around breast cancer. She said awareness around breast screening was needed.
She said she was raised aware of a family history of breast cancer, and lost her “favourite aunt” to breast cancer when she was 12.
“I felt that I could make a difference to a woman’s life by choosing the breast cancer surgery field,” she said.
The Clifford Craig Foundation fundraiser luncheon is on Friday March 10 at 12pm at Hotel Grand Chancellor, Launceston. It is $76 per person including a two course meal and a champagne on arrival. RSVP is March 3 or until sold out.
