Cup­cakes help raise aware­ness

Com­mu­nity gath­ers for Cancer Coun­cil

Maroochy Weekly - - LIFE -

ALEXAN­DRA Head­lands woman Sallyanne Hol­land opened her heart and home last week to raise vi­tal funds for Cancer Coun­cil Queens­land.

Sallyanne said the event was an af­ter­noon to raise aware­ness and much needed funds to help beat women’s can­cers.

“So many women and their fam­i­lies are af­fected by cancer — from high-pro­file stars such as Ju­lia Louis-Drey­fus to women like my mother and aunty — so it’s im­por­tant we keep work­ing to­gether to beat cancer,” she said.

“I love or­gan­is­ing and host­ing events so get­ting the girls to­gether reg­u­larly to raise funds is my way of us­ing my skills to give back to the com­mu­nity.”

A rep­re­sen­ta­tive from Cancer Coun­cil Queens­land at­tended the event to talk about how all pro­ceeds raised would go to­wards vi­tal re­search, pa­tient sup­port ser­vices, and pre­ven­tion pro­grams for women af­fected by breast and gy­nae­co­log­i­cal can­cers.
