Bridge to 2030 Brisbane

For my Mother ....

Hi friends and family,

I'm taking on the Bridge to 2030: Brisbane as I'm inspired to help National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF) reach their goal of zero deaths from breast cancer by 2030!

NBCF is Australia’s leading national body funding game-changing breast cancer research with money solely donated by the Australia public, they receive no government funding. So that is why I am committed to helping them raise funds for game-changing research to stop deaths from breast cancer.  

So please help me to spread the word by sharing my page with your friends and family and create a better tomorrow for those impacted by breast cancer.

Thank you in advance for your generosity, it means a lot!


To my Mum ....

Today (31 March 2019) is my first Mother’s Day (UK) without my beloved Mum, Jacqui Hance.

It has been 2 months since we buried you at Springwood and whilst your body rests now peacefully after many years of fighting this horrible illness, I shall always feel a deep sadness that this disease, which had no right to take you from me, did just that, and on my birthday of all days.  But, you know, this disease will never be stronger than the love we felt and continue to feel for each other.  I truly believe that love conquers all and, in death, which really is simply a temporary separation of two different spheres or worlds that we exist within, we continue to feel love and take it with us.  The dreaded C may take us physically but the love we feel lives on.

I have been far too wrapped up in your passing to consider contributing to others suffering from the same plight in this world but now seems a fitting time to do just that.  In your honour, your beautiful granddaughter Lauren has arranged for she and I to join the National Breast Cancer Awareness ‘Bridge to 2030’ team where we shall both climb the Story Bridge in Brisbane together on 30th May 2019 to raise funds in aid of making a significant breakthrough to stop this horrid disease by 2030.

This will be a first for me as I have never climbed up a bridge before!  Neither did you Mum so I am hoping you will be right there beside us in spirit as we reach the top! ? 

I am not sure how much we will raise but we are going to give this a good go and hope that our friends will come through and support us in doing this! 

I love you Mum, to the moon and back again.....  

Thank you to my Sponsors
