[Brisbane, Australia, February 4, 2015] - Style Magazine, Brisbane's magazine for metropolitan lifestyle brings you the hottest in today's fashion trends, latest events, and the best of the city's social scene. Before the month ends, Style is giving readers a chance to snag two tickets and join the upcoming 'Through the Looking Glass' cocktail party. This is in support of the Melanoma Institute Australia.
Emma Betts, a stage 4 melanoma patient, and the woman behind the blog, Dear Melanoma, is hosting the event. After having been terminally diagnosed, Emma has dedicated both her time and energy into raising awareness about the disease that continues to perplex experts and take the lives of thousands of Australians each year.
Mirra Private Dining and Events is also joining the cause and working with Emma for this event.
Australia has the highest number of Melanoma cases in the world. Each year 10,000 Australians are diagnosed with the disease. That is an average of 30 people every day. Of the patients diagnosed, more than 1,200 do not make it and die each year.
Melanoma is a form of cancer that develops in the skin's pigment cells. The cancer is easy to treat when caught early. Usually, it begins as a mole-gone-wrong. Stage 1 melanoma can be treated by removing the mole, but if left unchecked, it spreads to other areas of the body and becomes life threatening.
‘Through the Looking Glass’
'Through the Looking Glass' is a fun event inspired by the little luxuries in life that we often take for granted or restrict to special occasions - think champagne, flowers, Pavlova, chocolate, and cheesy music. It will be held at Mirra Private Dining and Events in Fortitude Valley, Brisbane on February 28, 2015, 7p.m. The price for each ticket is $150. All proceeds will go to the Melanoma Institute Australia.
