Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea 2011

5 May


An ugly disease. It has the power to instill blind fear and insufferable pain.

Cancer also leaves many survivors in its wake. Those who fought and won. Everyday people with amazing stories that deserve to be celebrated.

I have even read reports of people who are thankful to have ‘tussled’ with cancer. Battlers’ whose lives have now become so precious that they live every day with wonder and gratitude.

In my personal experience though, cancer is a thief. It crept into my life without warning and stole my dad years before any of us were ready to say goodbye. Ten months from prognosis to ashes.

Who hasn’t been touched by cancer? I guarantee that if you are reading this, you will know someone whose life has been irrevocably altered by cancer. A family member, friend, or someone you once went to school with. Cancer is everywhere.

Sorry to be a downer guys, but I do admit to possessing a bit of a hate-on for cancer!

This is why I feel truly honoured to have been asked to promote Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea by the NSW Cancer council’s media office.

It’s a way of joining the fight – increasing awareness and helping raise money to fund vital cancer research, prevention, information and support services.

Officially held on May 26, you are invited to switch on the kettle, register now and invite your friends, colleagues and family to join Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea in May and help reduce the impact of cancer in Australia.

Who: Get together friends, family, school mates, work colleagues, or anyone who wants to help beat cancer in your community.

When: The official date is Thursday 26 May, but you can hold a morning tea any time during May (or June).

Where: Anywhere! You can hold your morning tea at home, at work, at school, or in your local town hall. The possibilities are endless!

How: Hosting a morning tea is easy. Register here

On the website, you can also access some yummy recipes from the likes of Callum Hann and Adriano Zumbo

It doesn’t matter how big or small your morning tea is. Invite your friends, family or work-mates and encourage them to donate to the cause.
