I'm GOING PINK for My Mum

I've made a pledge to GO PINK!

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 and a further 9 will lose their life.

This June, I've made a pledge to WEAR IT, SHAVE IT or COLOUR IT and raise funds for game-changing research into early detection and preventative treatments for breast cancer, which is vital to increasing survival rates.

Every donation, big or small, will get me closer to reaching my goal and helping the National Breast Cancer Foundation end deaths from breast cancer.

My Updates

Fundraising Goal update

Saturday 14th May
So thank you to all who have already donated and because of your generosity, I have succeeded my goal of $500 and have therefore up'd it to $750.
I feel so amazingly blessed to have such wonderful people and support in my life and cannot thank you all enough.

Stay tuned for dates for when I'll be colouring and shaving my hair in June.

My reason

Friday 6th May
Everyone has their reasons for what they do. Ten years ago my mum was diagnosed with breast cancer. It was such a daunting time for the whole family, we didn't know what to expect or what was going to happen.
With intense radiation therapy after her operation to remove the cancer lump, we were told with hormone tablets it was a good outlook.

Fast forward 10 years to march this year, and my mum gets the news that there is another cancerous lump this time in her other breast. This time around we weren't expecting it after ten years of good, clear results. So after yet another operation to remove this lump, this time mum has to have weekly chemotherapy (which she started this week) for 12 weeks, with the possibility of needing more and possibility of radiation again.

So my reason for shaving my head and for wearing pink (a colour I don't normally wear by the way), is to support my mum and be by her side now just as she's been by my side since giving birth to me.

Love you mum
