Cancer Council Queensland is calling on women across Queensland to get together and host a Girls’ Night In to raise funds for its life-saving work in women’s cancers. The campaign, which has recently been relaunched,  is a simple and fun way for women to come together and socialise whilst raising funds and awareness for women’s cancer research, prevention programs and support services. Whether it be a movie or pamper night, a yoga or craft session there are endless ways to get involved to raise funds for those affected by breast and gynaecological cancers.

Cancer Council Queensland CEO Chris McMillan encourages women and businesses to register now to host a Girls’ Night In as September marks Gynaecological Cancer Awareness Month and October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. “By hosting a Girls’ Night In for Cancer Council Queensland, not only can you spend valuable time with friends, colleagues, customers, and loved ones, you can also raise funds to support more than 4300 women across the state who are diagnosed with a breast or gynaecological cancer every year,” she said.

With one in six women women to be diagnosed with breast or gynaecological cancer in their lifetime the year round campaign also aims to provide an opportunity to get women to think about their own health and ways they can reduce their cancer risk and detect cancer early. All funds donated go directly to Cancer Council Queensland with donations as small as $25 making a significant impact to cancer prevention, screening and diagnosis within the industry.
