Celebrity chef Janelle Bloom is inviting all Australians to host a morning tea to help beat cancer. "Many of us know first-hand the turmoil the word ‘cancer’ creates, including me. When my younger sister was diagnosed with aggressive breast cancer it turned our lives upside down. Once she came through all the treatment and was on the road to recovery I promised her I’d give back to all the wonderful people who saved her life. That’s why I’m supporting Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea” she said. 

Cancer Council’s Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea ambassadors will join over a million Australians on May 22 to make their cuppa count. This year Cancer Council aims to recruit 36,000 generous morning tea hosts to raise over $13million. Funds raised support Cancer Council’s life-saving work into prevention programs, world class research and support services (like the Cancer Council Helpline 13 11 20) for all people affected by cancer. 

TV personality Anna Gare is taking the opportunity to get together with friends and family over a cuppa. “As a passionate supporter of a healthy, active lifestyle, which is fundamental to reducing your cancer risk, I’m really proud to support Cancer Council’s Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea. Nowadays in our busy lives, the opportunities to get together with colleagues, friends or family can slip past all too quickly. This is a great excuse to seize the opportunity for a great cause.” she said. 

Across Australia, workplaces, schools, communities and homes will join the celebrations, raising funds to help beat cancer. TV presenter and cancer survivor Barry Du Bois is proud to make his cup count this May. “I know better than anyone that cancer can stop you in a hurry. So no matter where I am, on May 22 I’ll be downing tools and joining friends and family for a great morning tea,” he said.
