Kerri-Anne to open screening centre
Kerri-Anne to open screening centre

Who better to come to Perth to open a free breast cancer screening service than showbiz darling Kerri-Anne Kennerley, who is in the midst of her own breast cancer battle.

The 58-year-old will head to Perth to open WA's first in-store breast cancer screening service at the David Jones Hay Street store on September 28.

The David Jones Rose Clinic, which will be operated by BreastScreen WA staff, will offer WA women a first-class clinical service at a convenient site for their biennial breast screenings.

By then, Kennerley will know if radiation treatment for her breast cancer has been successful.

Kennerley said on Thursday she had completed a 6 1/2-week course of radiation treatment but it was still possible she might need medication for another five years.

"When I see the oncologist in a few weeks, they will tell me what they want me to do," she said.

"There's a little-known fact, that for five years they want you to take anti-cancer drugs. You have to weigh up those options and we are going to have that discussion."

Kennerley has not let her battle with cancer stop her. This weekend, she is heading to Europe to film a travel commercial arranged by Seven.
