We Can All Help

I am taking part in The March Charge with Cancer Council and telling cancer where to go and I am hoping you will help me with this worthy cause.  It’s going to be a challenge, but it’s nothing compared to those who experience cancer and I am one of those people.

As many of you know I am undergoing treatment for bowel cancer and nothing can prepare you for the day you are told the initial bad news.  Thankfully I am one of the lucky ones and my diagnosis is good.  I am undergoing treatment at Chris O’Brien Lifehouse and I cannot express enough how wonderful the medical staff are there and what an amazing job they do.

Sadly cancer affects too many of us. Research sees more people than ever survive but we’ve still a way to go and we can all help.

My goal is to walk at least 3km a day which does not sound like a lot but many of the wonderful side effects of chemotherapy is blistered feet so some days are better than others. Hopefully I will increase my distances as the month goes by.

If you would like to support my challenge simply click on the link on this page and make a donation.

Your donation will help our local Cancer Council support those affected right now and fund world changing research to help more people survive.

Thank you for your support.
