I've made a pledge to GO PINK!

This June, the National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF) is challenging all Australians to make a pledge and GO PINK to raise funds in support of the thousands of women and men whose lives have been - and will be - impacted by breast cancer.

This year my beautiful mum was diagnosed with breast cancer. A complete shock to her and us but we are so thankful it was discovered early enough to remove and treat. with chemo.

My mum will survive this because so much research has been invested into the type of cancer she has.

Of all the women diagnosed in my world, all have been young, under 40 and 50 years old. 

During the month of June, I will be running 16km a week. 16 because that is the number of treatments my mum will undergo in her fight.

Breast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in Australia. Almost 20,000 women and men will be diagnosed this year. That’s 55 Australians every single day. Since NBCF’s inception in 1994, the five-year survival rate for breast cancer has increased from 76% to 91%. It’s proof that their strategy of investing in world-class research is working. However 8 women still lose their lives from breast cancer each day – mothers, daughters, sisters, aunts and friends.
