Your Story: Kyogle Quota get into the pink

APPROXIMATELY 70 people were greeted with tables decked out with lovely pink tablecloths, serviettes and milk bottles, with gifts also wrapped in pink paper, when they attended Kyogle Quota Club's Pink Luncheon recently.

Thank you to all for attending, supporting and giving donations to the cause.

Donations to Oncology

All money raised from the Pink Luncheon will be donated to the Oncology Unit at Lismore Base Hospital

Guest speaker was Simone Rutley, who works at the Oncology Unit at Lismore Base Hospital.

Simone works with a medical oncologist as a medical oncology social worker.

She supports people who have been diagnosed with cancer, who are having radiation and chemotherapy, caring for their well being by giving them plenty of emotional support, socially and personally.

Simone explained although cancer seemed to be on the rise, population growth was also increasing.

More Success

Money raised for research and treatments has given more success now of recovery from cancer.

The money raised goes towards equipment, emergency accommodation for when patients need to go travel away from home for treatment, for example in Sydney, and towards supporting people with their particular needs.

A patchwork handbag, made and donated by Beverley Trench was a popular raffle prize, won by Pat Reeves.

Quota members chose Karen Mazzer as having the outfit with the most pink, including pink in her hair.
