Fijian cancer survivors grateful for donated prosthetics

Updated 17 March 2014, 11:57 AEST

An Australian woman is coming to the aid of breast cancer sufferers in Fiji who cannot afford post-operative cosmetic care.

For over a decade Heather Tait has been raising funds for community projects in Fiji, and recently she's turned her attention to poorer rural women in the country who have had mastectomies.

They don't have the money to pay for breast reconstruction, so Heather has stepped in to have women fitted with prosthetics breasts donated by Australians.

People who would like to donate items to Heather's project can visit or post items to her address: The Robertson Supermarket, 87 Illawarra Highway, Robertson, NSW, 2577.

Presenter: Natasha Mitchell

Speaker: Heather Tait, coordinator of a prosthetic breast/bra initiative for Fijian women
