Morning Tea will serve to inform of local cancer care

State Member for Caloundra Mark McArdle and the Rotary Club of Caloundra Pacific have today announced the panel of guest speakers who attendees will have the pleasure of listing to at the fifth annual Caloundra’s Biggest Morning Tea held next month. 

“Our guest speakers provide us with three perspectives of what it means to receive a cancer diagnose in this region, and with 3200 new cancer diagnosis on the Sunshine Coast each year this is invaluable knowledge for anyone,” Mr McArdle said.   

“We will first hear from Cancer Council Queensland CEO Chris McMillan who will let us know how the funds raised on the day will provide specialty support services for patients and their carers.  

“Our second speaker Nicole Buddle, a Radiation Oncologists from the Adem Crosby Cancer Centre at SCUH will provide invaluable insight into how the Centre’s new technology and equipment has enhanced patient outcomes on the Sunshine Coast as many no longer need to travel to Brisbane for treatment.

“Finally, but perhaps most poignantly, we will hear from a local cancer survivor who will share their story of living with a cancer diagnoses on the Coast. 

“While this event is always an enjoyable morning out for our community, it is also a valuable opportunity to look at where what services are available in our region as well as how to better support and understand what someone close to us might be going through.

“Seats are filling fast. We will be closing the book off soon so don’t forget to reserve your spot,” Mr McArdle concluded.
