Sinilia Radivojevic has been a Cancer Council volunteer for more than 30 years. And why?
"I really believe in what the Cancer Council does," she said.
"Not only is Cancer Council the biggest non government funder of research in Australia, but it also provides support for cancer patients and carers though the 131 120 support line as well as financial and pro bono programs. It's really important we all work together for a cancer free future."
Ms Radivojevic is hosting her 19th Australia's Biggest Morning Tea on Saturday, May 25 at the Fairfield Youth and Community Centre.
Cancer Council prostate group researcher Visalini Nair-Shalliker will be a special guest speaker at the event which will feature entertainment by local artists. She will talk about some of the research projects currently being funded by this type of event and the difference it is making.
Since it began in 1994, millions of Australians have come together over a cuppa and a bite to eat in support of those affected by cancer. Last year, the Australia's Biggest Morning Tea raised more than $11.3 million nationally.
Community Coordinator at Cancer Council's Parramatta office Denise Daynes said events like the Fairfield Australia's Biggest Morning Tea helps them work towards a "cancer free future."
"The money raised fund Cancer Council's life-saving research, prevention, programs, advocacy and support services."
- The Fairfield Community Biggest Morning Tea event starts at 10.30am. To attend this event contact Sinilia on 0414 507 912.
