This October, I am taking part in the Great Cycle Challenge to fight kids' cancer!
Because right now, cancer is the largest single killer of children from disease in Australia – over 600 children are diagnosed with cancer every year and sadly, 3 die every week.
Of funding provided by the Government for Cancer Research, 92% goes toward Adult Cancers, and sadly Kid's Cancer Research only receives 8% of that funding.
Until better Treatments and Medications are developed for Kid's, they will continue receiving "Adult Dosages" of Treatments and Medications. These are working well in fighting the Cancer, but they also come with devastating and life threatening side effects.
Kids should be living life, not fighting for it .... and we need to give them the best chance.
And so I am riding and raising funds to support the Children's Medical Research Institute to continue their work into the prevention, diagnosis, treatment and finding a cure for childhood cancer.
Please support my challenge by making a donation through my fundraising page to give these kids the brighter futures they deserve.
Together, we can save little lives.
