THE Leukaemia Foundation has launched one of the largest websites in Queensland and members from the foundation's Warwick branch are excited by the possibilities it offers.

"The website provides interactive social media, in depth illness and research information, fundraising and online donations," Leukaemia Foundation Warwick branch member Jenn Greene-Galloway said.

"The Leukaemia Foundation holds their state conference annually, delegates from each branch state wide is invited to attend.

"This allows the opportunity for all branch volunteers to keep in touch with the past years activities and strategies into the future.

"Due to the welcomed increasing survival rate this presents new challenges for the foundation.

"We are designing survivorship programs and to ensure we deliver, we need you.

"It's vital to continue offering community support to sufferers and their families and we can't do it without you."

Mrs Greene-Galloway said there were several ways Warwick residents could lend a hand.

One of which is by attending their Christmas break-up party at the Criterion Hotel on December 6.

The event will start at 6.30pm and tickets can be purchased for $25 by phoning Doreen on 4664 8119 by today.
