A mini field of women will help form a tribute to those who have lost their lives to breast cancer.
Organised by the Port Macquarie-Hastings Breast Cancer Support Group, the mini field is on Friday September 21.
Support group coordinator Judith Hutchesson says the community is invited to attend the event.
"We are encouraging everyone who comes along on Friday to write their personal message of support and hope," she said.
"These messages will be displayed on the 100 pink lady silhouettes that are each year displayed in the garden area of the library.
"This mini field is open to the public.
"The Port Macquarie-Hastings event coincides with other mini fields across Australia, on behalf of Breast Cancer Network Australia.
"This day is to remember those who have lost their lives and for those who are struggling."
Mrs Hutchesson said it is estimated that this year 18,235 women and 148 men will be diagnosed with breast cancer. Sadly, 3157 women and 28 men will lose their battle, she said.
"Our mini field of women also coincides with the 15th birthday of the group, which was started by breast cancer nurse specialist Joanne Woodlands at the Port Macquarie Base Hospital in September 2003."
Mayor Peta Pinson will launch the event with a pink ribbon cutting following by morning tea with support group members in the library meeting room.
The 11th mini field of women display is at the Port Macquarie Library on Friday September 21, from 10am until 1pm.
