SISTERS Shona Stewart and Kathleen Picone have put their hands up to end women's cancers. Literally.
The pair, who grew up in Mount Pritchard, will sport new pink ribbon tattoos on their wrists when they take part in the The Weekend to End Women's Cancers on November 9 and 10.
The two-day, 60-kilometre walk through Sydney will raise money for the Chris O'Brien Lifehouse at RPA, a centre of excellence for cancer care.
Their motivation is as clear as the ribbons on their wrists.
"We lost our mum when we were young to breast cancer and we know a lot of other people with cancer, so it is something close to our hearts," Shona said.
"When we heard about the walk on the radio we thought it would be a great way to not only raise money to end all women's cancers, but more importantly I hope there will come a day when kids won't lose their mums to cancer and husbands can grow old with their wives."
Shona, from Horningsea Park and Kathleen, from Hinchinbrook, have been training hard in preparation for the event.
They have set their fund-raising target at $4000.
"We hope we can raise as much as we can and sincerely thank everyone who has already donated," Kathleen said.
