Locals' healthy glow turns pink over Cancer Council brekkie

WITH October being international breast cancer awareness month it's the perfect time of year for ladies to think all things pink and focus on health.

Cancer Council's Pink Ribbon Breakfast was a sold-out success yesterday at the Gladstone Golf Club.

The event ran from 7am until 9am, attracting business professionals as organisers had hoped.

Organiser Elaine McIntosh said the giveaways and delicious food were many people's favourite parts of the event.

Cancer Council Queensland spokesperson Katie Clift said it was easy to get involved with events to show support for women affected by cancer.

"One in two Queensland women will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime so we're encouraging everyone to buy and wear a pink ribbon or host a Girls' Night In to show support for all women affected by cancer."

Cancer Council Queensland hopes to raise over $2 million through these events to invest funds into vital cancer research, patient support services and education programs.
