Breastever Breakfast’s tickle pink milestone

As we get ready to mark Breast Cancer Awareness Month from 1 October, an important milestone has quietly been achieved in an industrial hanger in Acacia Ridge, south of Brisbane.

Hastings Deering has helped raise more than $200,000 in the last 22 years for breast cancer research and support, including through its longstanding connection with Mater Chicks in Pink.

Last month, Hastings Deering hosted its 20th annual fundraising breakfast — better known as the ‘Breastever Breakfast’ — at Hastings Deering Hanger 2. It also marked the 15th year that Mater Foundation co-hosted the event.

The event started in 2000 with a dozen people coming together to honour family and friends diagnosed with breast cancer.

Despite a short hiatus due to the coronavirus pandemic, the breakfast returned this year with more than 140 attendees sharing stories, inspiration, and hope for the future.

The event featured a panel of speakers, including Director Medical Services for Mater Private Hospital Brisbane, Mater Private Hospital Redland and Mater Private Hospital Springfield, Dr Christopher Pyke, as well as Breast Care Nurse Ash Mondolo.

Hastings Deering is known for selling, renting, and offering support and parts distribution services for customers across industries, including mining, general constructions, civil transport and commercial construction, power systems, government, primary industries and marine.

To make an industry statement, the company turned one of its earth-moving machines a bright shade of fuchsia this year to raise awareness about breast cancer.

You can follow the lead set by Hastings Deering and host your own Breasties Brunch this October to support the superwomen living with breast cancer.
