Fitzy’s Toowoomba pulled out all the stops for the return of their MJH Finance Colour of Change Breast Cancer Luncheon last week following the events first ever hiatus due to COVID-19. Now in its 11th year, the event has raised $376,899 for local women who use the services of Breast Screen Queensland Toowoomba. This year, local Toowoomba woman Monique Correy shared her breast cancer journey with the sell-out crowd. In November 2018 at just 27-years-old, Monique Correy received the news she had Grade 3 Triple Negative Breast Cancer. Not long after her diagnosis, she discovered she is also a carrier of the genetic mutation, BRCA1, which can increase your risk of breast and ovarian cancer by as much as 71 per cent. This years event saw a phenomenal $80,000 for Toowoomba Breast Screen, $30,000 more then the 2019 event.
