Buy a pink pen or pin to help beat women’s cancer

THE CANCER Council's official Pink Ribbon Day is today and volunteers are out in force selling merchandise.

Monday is the last day to buy something pink for a good cause.

Between 9.30am and about 4pm today visit Pialba Place, Eli Waters, Urangan Central, Stockland and Maryborough's Station Square shopping centres to buy an official Pink Ribbon Day pen or pin

It is hoped $1.9 million will be raised from the efforts, held across Australia.

Cancer Council Queensland spokesperson Katie Clift said about 4000 women are diagnosed with breast of gynaecological cancer every year.

"Around 800 will die from a woman's cancer," she said.

"CCQ is working hard every day to beat woman's cancers through prevention programs, support services and world-class cancer research."
