Day of Indulgence

01 Jun 2017

Day of Indulgence Image

Ten women with breast cancer were treated to a Day of Indulgence on two luxury cabin cruisers in Victoria Harbour on May 23.

The Day of Indulgence was organised by Think Pink Foundation, a non-profit organisation that provides free pampering services for Victorian women and men battling breast cancer.

The 47-foot cruisers from Pleasure Cruising Club were decorated in pink to show support for the special guests, who had a relaxing day chatting, taking photos and having a nice lunch on board.

The Think Pink Foundation operates a living centre at 390 St Kilda Rd and offers private consultations, a wig bank with more than 100 wigs, a beauty, make-up and hair salon, complimentary transport and an apartment for people travelling more than 100km for their treatments.

Ron Smith, Think Pink Foundation’s chairman, said the participants had a great day out on the Day of Indulgence.

“It’s just a pleasant, relaxing day in an environment that they have never experienced before,” Mr Smith said.

Mr Smith said the Think Pink Living Centre had become a meeting place for patients to share their experiences.

“We provide an environment for them to come and talk about their experiences and the challenges they are facing with people who understand them,” he said. “People can do art and Tai Chi at the centre and the make-up salon is particularly popular.”

Think Pink also operates a Supporting Blokes group for men with breast cancer or whose partners are dealing with breast cancer.
