I’m fundraising for Cancer Council Victoria to help stop cancer.
Every year more than 35,000 Victorians hear the words ‘you have cancer’.
Thanks in part to generous Victorians, 7 in 10 of them will survive five years after a cancer diagnosis, but there’s still so much work to be done.
Cancer Council needs our support more than ever this year - after losing much of their fundraising last year due to the covid restrictions placed on events. Every dollar raised gives hope for a cancer-free future. By supporting my Gala, you’re funding life-saving cancer treatments, prevention programs, and support services that ensure no one has to face cancer alone.
I have been hosting fundraisers for over a decade now, and they continue to grow, spreading more awareness, and my goodness they are fun! So much fun!
Cancer has been in my life since I was 4 years old.
My beautiful, strong, warrior mum has tackled (and won! CHAMPION!) cancer multiple times - and we both carry the BRCA1 genetic mutation making our chances of developing breast (both male and female), skin, ovarian, prostate, and pancreatic cancer much higher than your average person.
We have both had double mastectomy's - Mum's to save her life, and mine as prevention after finding out my chances of developing breast cancer were sitting at 85% before I turned 30.
Knowledge can be power.
Our story is a good one though. Mum is alive and well, and I had the medicine available to me that possibly changed my path. Many people aren't so lucky. We have lost countless friends and family members to this brutal disease, but if we can raise some money that changes someone's story for the better, then I know we've done a good thing.
So join me, if you can.
I know 2020 was hard, on so many levels, for so many people. But if you can even spare the cost of a cup of coffee then you are making a difference!
Thankyou for helping me on my journey to spread awareness about cancer treatment, prevention and support programs.
I truly appreciate it.
Ps. Consider this your daily reminder to have a feel of your bod!
If something seems off, go see a doctor. Immediately. It could change your life!
