Women encouraged to don a Pink Ribbon



Last updated:

Mother’s Day is having a makeover this year, with Cancer Council Queensland encouraging women across the state to dress up and don a Pink Ribbon for Mother’s Day.

The charity is inviting Queensland women to wear pink, purchase Pink Ribbon merchandise, and check in with the Mum’s in their lives to raise funds for women’s cancers.

Those that donate will also receive a Mother’s Day e-card to pass on the love.

Cancer Council Queensland’s Pink Ribbon campaign raises funds for women’s cancer research, prevention programs, and support services.  

Cancer Council Queensland CEO Ms Chris McMillan urges women across the state to get involved in honour of the mums who have been impacted by cancer.

“We often think of mums as superheroes, and this Mother’s Day is an opportunity to check in and thank them for all they do.

“There are many of us who have lost our mothers to cancer, and this Mother’s Day I invite all Queensland women to wear pink and fundraise in honour of them.

“Over 4,300 Queensland women are diagnosed each year with a breast or gynaecological cancer.

“Register your Pink Fundraiser, set up a video chat, and check in with your loved ones to make a difference.

“By supporting the efforts of Pink Fundraising, you’re helping Cancer Council Queensland support the one in six Queensland women who will be diagnosed with a breast or gynaecological cancer in their lifetime.”
