I'm Stepping Up To Breast Cancer

This August, the National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF) is challenging all Australians to come together to Step Up to Breast Cancer and raise funds in support of the thousands of women and men whose lives have been - and will be - impacted by breast cancer.

I've stepped up to the challenge to take 10,000 steps everyday for the month of August and raise funds for game-changing research, helping take NBCF one step closer to ending deaths from breast cancer.

Breast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in Australia. Almost 20,000 women and men will be diagnosed this year. That’s 53 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. 

Please donate to my page and you’ll be helping the National Breast Cancer Foundation take one step closer to their goal of ending deaths from breast cancer. 

YOU can make a difference. Let me know if you want to Step Up to Breast Cancer with me!

My Updates

Running for Katie....?

Monday 31st Aug
In June this year our family received the news no family EVER wants to hear... that my beautiful sister had breast cancer. We have absolutely no family history of breast cancer, so this came as a complete shock! 

Once the shock, fear and sadness settled we pulled ourselves together, and with the help of many incredible friends created a plan to ensure our beautiful Katie’s journey to recovery was as restful as possible. 

There have been some very challenging days during which, my big sister has shown us just how strong she really is. 

It is my hope that completing this challenge will provide a welcomed distraction for Katie and our family, with the added bonus of raising money for a wonderful cause.  

Together we will beat this!
