The Star 7 News Latest Christchurch news at www. .kiwi Thursday May 4 2017 Good reason to follow tradition • By Bridget Rutherford EMMA YATES’ grandmother used to paint her initials on the bottom of her crockery collection in nail varnish so she could keep track of it. Lerline Morris lost her battle to breast cancer aged just 57, and now Ms Yates has her collection, and adds new items to it. As a tribute, she will use it in her Pink Ribbon afternoon tea on May 21 to raise money and awareness for the Breast Cancer Foundation New Zealand. “The one thing that’s special to me is that the china has her initials on the bottom that she’s done in nail varnish.” Mrs Morris painted her initials so when she took it to her women’s division functions, she would know they were hers, Ms Yates said. Ms Yates, now 39, had two fibroadenoma lumps removed when she was 29 and 31, and goes for a check up every year now. She said it was so important for women of any age to be aware of the breast cancer symptoms and to get checked. “I think a lot of people think it will never happen to them.” She said she was “very lucky”. Last year she hosted a breakfast with a friend – but this year would be her first individual event. She chose to do an afternoon tea because it was more in line with her business The Traveling Tea Party. “It’s a good idea to get a bunch of girlfriends or colleagues together to have a fun event that also supports a good cause.” Pink Ribbon events will run throughout May. More than 3000 Kiwis are diagnosed with breast cancer a year, with 600 dying of the disease. Proceeds from the events will go towards breast cancer research, and help provide awareness education and support for patients. Last year’s Pink Ribbon events raised $1.7 million. •If you would like to sign up to host a Pink Ribbon event, visit https:// pinkribbonbreakfast.co.nz/ TRIBUTE: Emma Yates will host a Pink Ribbon afternoon tea this month with her late grandmother’s crockery to raise money and awareness for breast cancer. PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER Treatment could speed breast cancer recovery • By Gabrielle Stuart UP TO 251 Christchurch women could benefit from a new breast cancer treatment being considered, a study has found. New technology allows radiotherapy to be done during breast cancer surgery, rather than being drawn out over several weeks. It means patients can be treated and recover faster. It is already being used in a private clinic in Auckland, and several groups have been campaigning to have it publicly funded. The study was commissioned by the Ministry of Health to look at the cost of funding the treatment, and estimate the demand for it. It estimated about 461 women across New Zealand would use the treatment, but it could vary between 80 and 1505. That included between 14 and 251 women in Christchurch. It estimated the cost of investing in the treatment would be between $3.72 million and $4.72 million, but it could also save significant amounts over 10 years by reducing the amount of time it took to treat women.
