Have a cuppa to help find a cure

CELEBRITY chef and Cancer Council ambassador Dominique Rizzo will raise her cup and tip the balance in the fight against cancer this May as part of Australia's Biggest Morning Tea.

The standout chef has joined the likes of Poh Ling Yeow, Alana Lowes and Matt Moran as a 2014 national ambassador, committed to making every cup count in the fight against cancer.

Thursday May 22 is the official date for Australia's Biggest Morning Tea, with more than 6500 Queenslanders expected to host a morning tea and raise more than $2.5 million for cancer research, education programs and patient support services.

Dominique Rizzo said it was a privilege to be involved with such a long-running campaign that supports Australians and their families diagnosed with cancer.

"Cancer research has made incredible advancements over the past 20 years, and it's important for us to continue to raise our teacups in support," Dominique said.

"Joining together for an Australia's Biggest Morning Tea is an easy, fun and incredibly delicious way that everyone can help work toward a cancer-free future."

Dominique has created an exclusive, mouth-watering recipe, Healthy Choc Truffles, for Queenslanders looking to impress their morning tea guests this May.

Cancer Council Queensland spokesperson Katie Clift said there was never a better time to switch the kettle on, tea up friends, family and workmates and help tip the balance in the fight against cancer.

"Whether it's a simple morning tea with workmates, a high tea with friends or a school bake sale, you'll be helping the one in two Queenslanders who will be diagnosed with cancer by age 85.

"All you need to do is sign on to host an event, check out the incredible recipes from ambassadors like Dom, and start planning!"

All funds raised from Cancer Council's Australia's Biggest Morning Tea support our vital work in cancer research, education programs and patient support services.

Thursday, May 22 is the official date of Cancer Council's Australia's Biggest Morning Tea, but morning teas can be held any time throughout May or early June.

Cancer Council Queensland is an independent, community-based charity, the achievements of which are made possible by the generosity of Queenslanders.
