Ahead of the curve

TODAY 50 Australian women will be told they have breast or gynaecological cancer.

Curves Gladstone is getting behind this year's Pink Ribbon Day, which aims to raise awareness and funds for the biggest killer of Australian women.

This Friday Curves Gladstone will host a pink ribbon breakfast at the Gladstone Golf Club.

Tickets for the breakfast are $35 and tables of 10 can be purchased for $30 a head. Guests will enjoy a delicious breakfast and hear from guest speakers, some of whom have survived the disease.

Curves owner Sue Wright said all funds raised from the event would go directly to the Cancer Council.

"I'd really encourage people to come along for a nice breakfast before work," she said.

"This event will support those who have been, or know someone who has been, affected."

On a personal level, Ms Wright will dye her hair pink at the event to show her support and raise funds.

Doors open at 7am and the event is expected to be wrapped up by 8.30am.
