Mandurah woman Anne Still is organising a morning tea at Christs Church Anglican Church, Mandurah on May 16 and aiming for a real party theme to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Biggest Morning Tea with a special cake, balloons and plenty of entertainment.

Mrs Still is no stranger to the devastation caused by cancer.

She became involved with fundraising for the WA Cancer Council after her husband died of oesophageal cancer in 2007, just two years after the couple emigrated to Australia.

In 2008 and 2009 she organised catering for the Mandurah Relay for Life.

In 2010, her mother-in-law in the UK died or oesophageal cancer and her 40-year old daughter in Sydney was diagnosed with breast cancer.

Her daughter’s school friend died last week aged just 43 and leaving two children.

When her husband was sick, the couple spent eight weeks at Crawford Lodge with financial and moral support from the WA Cancer Council.

‘I want to help fund the support that is given to others,” she said.
