It's October again, breast cancer awareness month.

As every October comes around, I always pause to reflect on the women who soldier on with their breast cancer journey. At a breakfast this morning hosted by the Brisbane North Chamber of Commerce (of which I am a member) a speaker from Cancer Council QLD was saying that the 5 year survival rate for breast cancer is now 97%.

An amazing figure. But it still means that 3% will not be here.. and my heart goes out to them and the ones they leave behind! Never mind, I want to be positive.. it is October and we will be attending several fund raisers this month, including one run by Bev from The Lido Restaurant in racecourse Road at Ascot. Check out Lido on Face Book and get yourself along there. It will be lots of fun and is f course, all for a good cause.

And my good mate Bev from the Lido in Ascot.

Whichever fundraiser you attend the month (and there are many) dig deep as 1 in 8 women will be affected by breast cancer. We need to nail this disease once and for all! Surely it can be done!
