Still time to party it up in October
OCTOBER is almost over but that doesn't mean the Pink party is!
TV presenter, foodie and Girls' Night In Ambassador Alana Lowes has teamed up with Cancer Council Queensland and is calling on Wide Bay Burnett girls to host a Girls' Night In to help beat women's cancers.
In October, Alana joined Cancer Council Queensland as a Girls' Night In Ambassador to raise important awareness of women's cancer research and support.
"I am honoured to be a Girls' Night In ambassador this year for the Cancer Council and excited to be again part of such a wonderful initiative to get women thinking about their health," she said.
"We need to know our bodies, be aware when little changes happen and never be too scared to go and get them checked by the doctor.
"Having seen the amazing advancements cancer research has made over the past few years it is so important for us to continue to support the progress in the hope that one day a cure can be found.
"Girls' Night In is an easy, fun and delicious way that everyone can help beat women's cancers, so why not get your girls together now to keep them together later!"
Cancer Council Queensland spokesperson Katie Clift said it wasn't too late to register and host a Girls' Night In in support of the fight against women's cancers.
"We need the women of Wide Bay Burnett to get the girls together now, to keep the girls together by hosting a Cancer Council Girls' Night In and fighting back against a disease that takes too much," Ms Clift said.
"Girls' Night In events can be held anytime throughout October or November and provide a great excuse to get your friends together for a bit of fun, while showing support for those affected by cancer.
"By hosting your own Girls' Night In you will be showing your support for the almost 4000 Queensland women, grandmothers, mothers, sisters, aunts, daughters and friends, who will be diagnosed with breast or gynaecological cancer this year."
"Simply invite the girls over for a fun night in and ask them to donate what they usually spend on a night out."
Cancer Council Queensland hopes that more than 2500 women across the state will host a Girls' Night In, to help raise vital funds for research and support in women's cancers.
Cancer Council Queensland will use funds raised from Girls' Night In events to invest $29 million this year into vital cancer research, patient support services and education programs.
