'It Can Get Us'

Brewarrina Shire Council and the Cancer Council entered into a Community Partnership in May 2008.

 The Council acknowledges the high level of physical and emotional suffering, premature death and financial burden caused by Cancer in this community.

By becoming a Cancer Council Community Council, Brewarrina Shire Council undertake to help lower the impact of this insidious disease in our community by:

  •  learning about and adopting new policies that will help reduce the incidence of cancer in our area;
  • supporting Cancer Council advocacy campaigns that will benefit the people of our community;
  • using our communication channel, venues and other resources for support group meetings, education programs and other activities that benefit cancer patients and their families in the area;
  • supporting the Cancer Council efforts in our area to raise money for cancer research, prevention and support.

Brewarrina Shire Council Youth Centre, the Cancer Council and Party Safari, in partnership, produced a DVD entitled "It Can Get Us". The documentary was aimed at teenagers and dark skinned people regarding looking after your skin and healthy eating. The acting was undertaken by local youth from Brewarrina.

The video can be viewed on youtube: It Can Get Us
