Morn­ings a suc­cess

Isis Town and Country - - Opinion -

THANK YOU to the thou­sands of Queens­lan­ders who tipped the bal­ance in the fight against can­cer by rais­ing their cups for Can­cer Coun­cil’s Aus­tralia’s Big­gest Morn­ing Tea dur­ing May. More than 5800 hosts around the state gath­ered in liv­ing rooms, com­mu­nity cen­tres, schools, and work­places to help us try and raise more than $2.5 mil­lion for life­sav­ing re­search, sup­port, and ed­u­ca­tion. On be­half of Can­cer Coun­cil Queens­land I would like to com­mend all the in­di­vid­u­als, em­ploy­ers, and me­dia out­lets who put on the ket­tle for the cause. Through the sim­ple act of shar­ing a morn­ing tea, you have pro­vided vi­tal hope to all Queens­lan­ders af­fected by can­cer. And our cause has never been more im­por­tant. One per­son is di­ag­nosed with can­cer ev­ery 20 min­utes in Queens­land – all of us know some­one who has been dev­as­tated by the dis­ease. Ev­ery dol­lar goes di­rectly to­wards sup­port­ing those in need. With your gen­eros­ity we will con­tinue to proudly serve all Queens­lan­ders, and all can­cers. If you haven’t yet hosted an Aus­tralia’s Big­gest Morn­ing Tea – it’s not too late. Hosts can hold a morn­ing tea any­time through­out May or June. Go to biggest­morn­ing tea.com.au or phone 1300 65 65 85. Ev­ery cup counts in our fight for a can­cer free fu­ture. Prof Jeff Dunn AO CEO, Can­cer Coun­cil Queens­land
