Join in fight­ing can­cer

Isis Town and Country - - Opinion -

IT’S time to put on the ket­tle and raise our tea cups to make a dif­fer­ence in the fight against can­cer. Next Thurs­day is Can­cer Coun­cil’s Australia’s Big­gest Morn­ing Tea, but Queens­lan­ders can boil the ket­tle and host a morn­ing tea any­time through­out May and June. Thou­sands of Queens­lan­ders will gather in homes, schools and work­places to help raise more than $2.5 mil­lion for can­cer re­search, ed­u­ca­tion and lo­cal sup­port ser­vices. There has never been an eas­ier way to show sup­port for more than 25,000 Queens­lan­ders who will be di­ag­nosed with can­cer this year. We urge the lo­cal com­mu­nity to get in­volved in this sig­na­ture cam­paign – in­vite your friends and fam­ily over for a cup of tea and slice of cake for a good cause. With your gen­er­ous sup­port we can con­tinue to reach out and of­fer sup­port, help­ing Queens­lan­ders to com­bat can­cer. Most of us know some­one who has been im­pacted by can­cer – grand­par­ents, par­ents, sib­lings and friends. This is our chance to work to­gether and cre­ate change. It’s so easy to get in­volved. Sim­ply make a do­na­tion, reg­is­ter to host your own Australia’s Big­gest Morn­ing Tea, or join in with a friend at www.biggest­morn­ingtea.com.au or 1300 656 585. We need your help this May 28. To­gether, we can beat can­cer. For more in­for­ma­tion about Can­cer Coun­cil Queens­land, visit www.can­cerqld.org.au or call Can­cer Coun­cil on 131 120. PROF JEFF DUNN AO
