Hope for breast­fast

Central and North Burnett Times - - LOCAL NEWS -

IT WAS a very pink morn­ing in the park.

Mun­dub­bera Guardian Phar­macy held a Pink Sausage Siz­zle Breast­fast in the park re­cently to raise funds for the Na­tional Breast Can­cer Foun­da­tion.

The morn­ing was well sup­ported with lo­cals en­joy­ing more than one of the Mun­dub­bera Sausage King’s snags.

Aswell as siz­zling sausages, phar­macy staff mem­bers were busy sell­ing raf­fle tick­ets and tak­ing pre-or­ders for the pop­u­lar pink lam­ing­tons.

“Oc­to­ber is Breast Can­cer Aware­ness month and the Guardian team get be­hind the cause to raise aware­ness and funds for the foun­da­tion,” Sam Rowles said.

“Breast can­cer is the most com­monly-di­ag­nosed can­cer among women in Aus­tralia.

“It’s so im­por­tant to get the mes­sage of hope out there andwe thank the community for their sup­port of our pink rib­bon break­fast cam­paign.”

Last year there were more than 2000 pink rib­bon break­fast events held around Aus­tralia, rais­ing $2.16 mil­lion for breast can­cer re­search.

This year Mun­dub­bera Guardian Phar­macy raised $1016. All pro­ceeds will be do­nated to the Na­tional Breast Can­cer Foun­da­tion.
