Thank You from Encore!!

I would like to say a huge Thank-You to Emma Lodge and her hard working committee for the fantastic donation from the Pink Ribbon High Tea for The Encore Programme of Cairns.

I am delighted to say this fantastic free 8 week exercise programme for woman diagnosed and treated for breast cancer became available in Cairns last year. We have run two very successful programmes with our first for 2012 soon to begin with a very long waiting list!!!

The fantastic news with this funding we have assisted 2 more Facilitators to be trained for Mareeba and Innisfail. Also it will assist the programmes to continue in Cairns. My dream that every lady in the Cairns and surrounding areas diagnosed with Breast Cancer has the opportunity to attend a programme.

Again a huge Thank-You

Heather Rogers-Encore Facilitator (Cairns)

Meet the authors of ‘7 Things Your Doctor Forgot to Tell You’ Dr Warren Sipser & Andi Lew.

Dr Warren Sipser is best known for his expertise in chiropractic health, and his passion for preventative health measures. From his practice in Elwood, Victoria, Dr Sipser cares for thousands of Australians. He is also the Secretary of the Chiropractors Association of Australia (Vic) and a Member of the Australian College of Chiropractors. An advocate of continual personal development and learning Dr Sipser recentlly completed his studies of a Masters in Paediatric Chiropractic, an achievement that will made him one of a handful in the world with this level of peadiatric experience.

His well placed enthusiasm for prevention through chiropractic and internal health stems from a young age when he lost his sister to cancer. Having gained this tremendous insight he has applied himself to create dramatic changes in the lives of others on a daily basis, through promoting the message of nurturing the core of your body, the spine, through chiropractic, diet and exercise. And optimizing your body’s functions to regulate and heal.

The acknowledgement and encouragement of his many patients and peers inspired Dr Warren Sipser to continue sharing his health messages and he and his wife, Andi Lew, authored the book “7 Things Your Doctor Forgot To Tell You”.

Recently his experience and passion for prevention has created awareness in many channels including sporting clubs and schools, having been invited to talk to the students and athletes on looking after their spine and health. Furthermore, Dr Sipser’s expertise has been engaged in the media with several media interviews including, Channel 9’s “A Current Affair”, “Herald Sun” & “GMA, Channel 10.”

Andi Lew will be host to the Pink Ribbon High Tea on Sunday 23rd October at the Shangri La Cairns ~ Tickets $75 available from Vivienne Francine, Baby Yeti, Harvey World Travel Edge Hill and

Beautiful Bras for Breast Cancer

The Beautiful Bras exhibition is currently lighting up the windows pink at Festival Cairns HQ on Lake Street. With some fantastic ‘unique’ designs such as a handbag, fascinator and pet toys to name a few, it just shows how multi talented bras can be – just like their wearers ha!

Coming up this Tuesday night, 5 Beautiful Bras have been selected to be paraded at The Boutique Collection fashion parade at The Attic from 6:30pm. Here’s a glimpse of the bras that have been selected:-

12B Coral Wilkinson – Treasure Chest
X marks the spot
Undiscovered treasure
Pearls of wisdom
Treasure your chest

The concept is X marks the spot with mammography and marking a suspicious area on the scan. The Undiscovered treasure and pearls of wisdom relates to the support and care given by health care professionals on a woman’s journey through treatment. And Treasure your chest implies that women should take care of themselves and attend breast screening.

12C Janine Bucklar – Vintage Doilies
This bra has been lovingly hand-stitched using materials ranging from vintage doilies and buttons to youthful ric rac and polka dots to represent the coming together of different generations of individuals within a community when affected by breast cancer. 

10D Hayley Gillespie –Big Bad Wolf
I was thinking about overcoming the wolf, as well as ever changing size, bravery and what it means to be a woman and the sacrifices made by our bodies for the greater good. We are a vehicle to make life, food and comfort as well as being people in our own right.

12C  Claire Wadell – Robinson – Mer bra
Inspired by living in Cairns and the Great Barrier Reef this bra has been created for a mermaid… a mer-bra! A person once told me that cancer only touches strong people. Ever since I heard this I’ve found it to be true. Catherine didn’t win her battle and her sister Rachel, my best friend, is now in remission post a double mastectomy and two reconstructions. Rachel is an inspiration to me and I’m so proud of her, her second child Jake is now three months old and she’s undoubtedly the bravest person I know. This one’s for you Rach, love CB
