My Story

7 Oct 2021

As you may be aware, and like many, cancer has impacted my family over the years and has now again presented a challenge to myself. Over the past weeks as I have been navigating the numerous medical appointments, scans and tests in preparation to start treatment, I have been reminded of how lucky I have been to have had a healthy and active childhood, teenage and young adult life.

Whilst my prognosis is reasonably good, the unfortunate reality is that cancer is the largest killer of children from disease in Australia - 3 children die of cancer every week. It's awful to think so many young lives are lost to this terrible disease.

To show my support, I am taking on a 30-day challenge in October to raise valuable funds to support cancer research.

It will be a tough few months with treatment starting next week, but it's nothing compared to what these brave kids face every day as they battle this disease and fight for their lives. My motivation and goal is to pedal 1,000 kilometres for this month.

So today, I'm asking for your support.

Please make a small donation through my fundraising page to support the Children's Medical Research Institute to continue their work into the prevention, diagnosis, treatment and finding a cure for childhood cancer.

Together, we can save little lives.

Thanks for your support.
