Nunawading Cricket Club – Womens’ Health Awareness

It was a pleasure to join Nunawading Cricket Club for their pink stumps day lunch at Mahoneys Reserve. On the day we heard from breast cancer survivor Megan about her firsthand experience, both the trauma she experienced and the immense resilience she showed during her journey.

In light of this, my constituency question is directed to the Minister for Health. Minister, how will women in the Glen Waverley district be able to engage with our landmark women’s pain inquiry?

For too long women’s health issues have been seen as a niche issue, but the reality is women make up over half of the Victorian community and women’s health has been overlooked for too long, not just issues like women-specific cancers but also fertility-related conditions, women’s pain and general health issues that are underdiagnosed.

Spreading awareness matters. I congratulate the Nunawading Cricket Club for running their pink stumps day to share these important stories. I commend all involved, including Megan for sharing her story and club president Rob Ferdinands for their leadership. I am proud to be part of a government that treats these issues with the focus they deserve. I look forward to the minister’s response.
