October is Think Pink Month - Live in Brisbane Northside?

Fund raising to help those women affected by breast cancer is so very important. But it can also be fun.. So listen to this and support Chicks in Pink

Friday October 24, Racecourse Road at Ascot is the place to be for breakfast, brunch or lunch. Here's how you can support this worthwhile cause and have a good time doing it.

What a fabulous day in Bundaberg

Well here it is, Monday night in Bundaberg and I have had a busy but very enjoyable morning with the local breast cancer support group. Maxine and her friends made both Mark and I very welcome. While I showed the ladies the very latest in prostheses and swim suits, Mark went walk about around the town looking for new gadgets!. The ladies meet here on the first Monday of every month and have a very warm caring group. The photos show me talking to the group and also Rosemary, Maxine and me.

Spirit of Life Road Trip

Well, it has been a long time between posts.. but here is the latest from Debra at Spirit of Life Boutique. Over the weekend of 17/18th February, Debra and Mark hit the road. And with the support of the Cancer Council of Queensland, held a workshop and fitting session in the Central Queensland city of Rockhampton. ABC local radio interviewed Debra on the subject of what she does... and the response was fabulous with women who heard the interview coming to her workshop.

Getting the message out to rural women that there are fashion choices available to them in the post mastectomy world is Debra's mission. She would like to thank in particular Caroline Humphries who gave up her time on a Sunday to open the Cancer Council office for Debra to hold her workshop.

The women who attended were simply amazed at the variety of pretty lingerie and mastectomy swimwear that Debra had to show to them.

If you're a member of a breast cancer support group.. please let Debra know as you never know when she will coming to your area.
