WHITE House Cancer Support in Dudley turned pink in a special event to mark the work of a long-running support group who help women across the borough.

'Pink Day' took place at the Ednam Road centre today (Wednesday, October 9) to raise awareness of breast cancer care, thanks to the hard work of volunteers who run the group.

Marion Griffiths, who survived breast cancer after being diagnosed in 1990, has led the Breast Care Support Group at the White House for 29 years, and this is her 26th consecutive 'Think Pink' event.

The 72-year-old continues to offer one-to-one support to women across the Dudley borough who are living with breast cancer by taking phone calls day and night to provide help and advice.

Marion, who lives in Wollaston, said: "It's an excellent group, everyone helps one another. It was an excellent day."

The event saw Mr Voynov, Consultant Breast Oncoplastic Surgeon from Russells Hall Hospital, speak to the group about the advances in breast cancer care and told the ladies about the role he undertakes at Russells Hall Hospital.

2019 sees White House Cancer Support mark 35 years of serving the community.

The Breast Care Support Group meets every second Tuesday of the month at the White House at 2pm.
