Melanoma is the number one cancer in QLD. Unfortunately we lead the world in those diagnosed with this horrible disease. I myself have recently been diagnosed with melanoma grade III. 

Councils need to be proactive in creating spaces that are safe and inclusive for all residents and visitors. Some guests cannot use the area for healthy activities due to the lack of water shade. 

Swimming and other aquatic activities are unthinkable for many like myself who are already diagnosed with skin cancer. Likewise, mothers of small children struggle to use the lagoon due to lack of shade. 

Council should be proactive in making the lagoon a safe and inclusive space for all that want to use it. Aquatic activities are fantastic for the elderly, sick and those recovering from injuries due to the low impact of the activity. Without these shaded areas it restricts the ability of many people to use this area. 

Please support me and many others who don’t want to risk their lives to be able to use the lagoon to try and increase their healthy activities. 

Adequate shade over the lagoon in needed and long overdue.
