A SIMPLE cup of tea could be all that stands between cancer and its eradication.
And Gladstone region residents are raising their cups to do their bit.
Preparations are in full swing for fundraising events around the region for Australia's Biggest Morning Tea.
The ladies from the Cancer Council Queensland Gladstone branch are calling for people to come along to their event at the Gladstone Ports Corporation Social Club on Thursday, May 15.
There will be a variety of cakes and sandwiches, as well as entertainment from Dave Murray and Marg McArdle.
Cancer Council Queensland Gladstone branch secretary Sue Gillard said the group wanted to raise $5000 at this year's event.
The committee said the cause was close to their hearts as they all knew someone who had been affected by cancer.
