GET involved in giving our granddaughters a future free of women's cancers.

When I started as the CEO at Cancer Council Queensland in March this year, I quickly discovered the many ways in which CCQ helps senior women beat cancer.

For over 56 years, Cancer Council has been delivering vital patient services, prevention programs, and world-leading research - giving Queensland women greater hope of beating this dreaded disease.

This year, you can make a difference in the lives of women affected by cancer by hosting a Pink Ribbon event to raise funds for Cancer Council Queensland.

Hosting a Pink Ribbon event is easy - simply invite your friends to join you for scones, a game of bowls, bingo, or even a bake sale.

Any money you raise makes a significant difference.

An event also provides the perfect opportunity for you to reach out to the women you love dearly, encourage them to get screened or simply be there to listen.

Our hope is that by thinking pink, you can help us create a future where our granddaughters don't have to suffer from the devastating effects of breast, cervical, ovarian, and other women's cancers.

Take action today by hosting a Pink Ribbon event. It's easy and we have all the tools you need to make your fundraiser a huge success.

To register, or donate today, visit pinkribbon.com.au or call 1300 65 65 85. For info. call us on 13 11 20.

- Ms Chris McMillan, CEO, Cancer Council Queensland.
