LOWOOD will turn into a pink beacon of hope tomorrow morning in support of local cancer sufferer Skye Coffey.
Skye is a 35-year-old Lowood mother of two who was diagnosed with breast and liver cancer two weeks ago.
She had to find thousands of dollars for a treatment recommended by her doctor.
After finding out Skye's plight, Lowood and surrounding communities went into fundraising overdrive.
Among the many donations were $8000 from the Eskapees Cancer Support Group and a whopping $13,000 from the Ipswich Cupcake Ladies Inc.
The fundraising continues to snowball with Lowood preparing to go pink tomorrow.
The Lowood Lions will fire-up the barbecue to kick-start the day's fundraising with a hot barbecue breakfast from 5am onward in the park off Main Street.
The Lowood Slimmers will also be there to back up the Lions and show their support for their comrade.
Following the barbecue, the Lowood Newsagency will host a cupcake morning tea.
Donation tins will also be found in most businesses, with all funds from the day going towards ongoing medical costs for Skye.
Lowood Slimmers president Beverley Lynch said she was proud to see the community come out in force to support a fellow group member.
"It had to be done so quick," she said.
"Everyone I've spoken to was very eager to help, no one has been hesitant in coming forward in support."
Mrs Lynch encouraged everyone to wear pink on the day and support Skye.
"It's to let Skye know everyone is there supporting her and hoping the best for her," she said.
The Lowood Slimmers will also run a raffle from Wednesday to Saturday outside the Lowood IGA.
