Can­cer car­ing

Isis Town and Country - - Opinion -

ONE per­son is di­ag­nosed with can­cer ev­ery 20 min­utes in Queens­land. All of us know some­one who is af­fected. If you’d like to show you care, please con­sider sup­port­ing Can­cer Coun­cil Queens­land’s work by reg­is­ter­ing in this year’s Re­lay For Life. Re­lay For Life brings Queens­lan­ders to­gether in the fight against can­cer. Last year around 23,000 peo­ple took part, rais­ing more than $3.5 mil­lion statewide – money which goes di­rectly back to sup­port­ing Queens­lan­ders. With re­newed com­mu­nity sup­port in 2016, we hope to raise more funds to help more peo­ple. Re­lay is the largest event of its kind in Queens­land, with 42 Re­lays sched­uled be­tween April and Novem­ber this year. This is your chance to show you care and take a strong stand against can­cer – cel­e­brate with those who have beaten it, re­mem­ber loved ones lost to the dis­ease, and fight back for a brighter fu­ture. This year we hope even more peo­ple will take up the Re­lay ba­ton. To­gether, we can make a dif­fer­ence. For more in­for­ma­tion or to find a Re­lay For Life near you, visit­ or give us a phone call on 1300 656 585. Pro­fes­sor Jeff Dunn AO Can­cer Coun­cil Queens­land CEO
