The March Charge 2021

My Activity Tracking

154
kms

My target 150kms

And that’s a wrap

I would just like to thank every single person who donated to this extremely worthy cause. You are all amazing and I appreciate you putting up with my consistent nagging and congoling to achieve this goal. For our family cancer has taken our girl far too soon with brain cancer, my brother in law with brain cancer  and most recently my dear mother in law with bowel cancer, and now my sister has a struggle on her hands with breast cancer - research is the only solution for the disease to ever be stamped out. So thanks so very much for what you have all done to assist in this way,  

Silent auction to beat cancer

My very dear friend Margie from Inverloch Ocean Beauty has donated an amazing set of gift packs for a morning tea my work is putting on Monday.  My lovely daughter Jessica is sorting out a silent auction via zoom. Both these women are incredibly busy and incredibly generous of soul. More money to go towards cancer research and tell cancer where to go! 

Last leg

Dear all 
Thanks so much for your support. So far together we have raised more than 5,000 dollars for cancer research. Cancer has touched us all. Research into how to cure cancer is so critical -  especially the most insidious of these diseases such  as Brain Cancer for which our Kirra was taken from us far too soon in her life. My sister is at 48 striving hard to survive her breast cancer for which research has made such inroads. I have upped my walk to 150 and this weekend as I think of another loved one who is fighting for his life in hospital ( not cancer but heart disease) I intend to walk hard and strong to reach that goal and think of all the people much stronger than me who are striving for so much more.
Please donate to this cause if you haven’t already. Together we will stamp out cancer forever !

And so it begins

My sister started her chemo on Friday. Brave woman. Sat amongst many brave people who were silent, talkative, pensive or simply just being. As the world outside keeps bustling away they sit and have their treatment and do not complain, do not whinge and reach out to the newbies to explain what happens.
I am in absolute awe of these fellow human beings who all have one thing in common - cancer has paid them a very personal visit and they wish to bid it a very big farewell.
This could be any of us. I don’t know anyone who hasn’t been touched by Cancer either themselves or through a friend or a family member. As my sister puts up her best fight against this
unwanted visitor I am trying to be useful. Trying to not say clumsy words that are not helpful, trying not to take over and make any of her decisions for her and trying to be her support person the best way I know how....so I am walking to raise money so we can beat this insidious disease for ever. Raising money for research. It’s the most useful thing we can all do.

My Story

I am taking part in The March Charge with Cancer Council and telling cancer where to go! Sadly cancer still takes too many of us. 1 in 2 Australians will be diagnosed with cancer by the age of 85. Research sees more people than ever survive but we’ve still got a way to go. And we need your help to end cancer. It’s going to be a challenge, but it’s nothing compared to those who experience cancer. Please sponsor me today to support my challenge and join me in telling cancer where to go! 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

Thank you to my Sponsors
