Last year , one of my oldest and bestest friends, Tracy, was diagnosed with grade 3 breast cancer at age 39. Trace had surgery to remove the tumor and has since endured months of chemotherapy and surgeries. One more surgery to go and she can start planning for a well deserved European vacation to celebrate the end of a really shitty 6 months or so.
When Trace told me the news i was devastated , why do shitty things happen to good people? Actually why do these things happen at all ? While things have come along way in regard to breast cancer research and survival rates - there is still much to learn. Last year, breast cancer became the most commonly diagnosed cancer in Australia, this is scary shit !
I've set a fundraising target of $3000 and i'm pretty confident i can get it . Your donation no matter how big or small WILL make a difference!
A $50 donation can contribute in helping researchers to analyse genetic data so they can pinpoint the genes that lead to the most common types of breast cancer
$500 Can contribute to helping researchers identify new non-genetic risk factors for breast cancer.
$1000 Can help researchers identify other DNA defects that may contribute to the development of breast cancer.
Please help me to donate as much as we can so that hopefully one day we can achieve the goal of Zero deaths from Breast cancer by 2030.
Keep an eye on my page for a fundraising event that Trace and i will be putting together for "GO PINK IN JUNE" to help raise even more money to go towards the National Breast Cancer Foundation .... i'll give you a hint - it involves food and Beer so i KNOW alot of you will be interested !

Australia, get ready, It's time to go pink.
From 18 – 24 June, the National Breast Cancer Foundation is challenging the men and women of Australia to GO PINK in support of the thousands of mothers, brothers, sisters, husbands, wives, daughters and sons that have been – or will be – affected by breast cancer.
I’ve joined the team because breast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in Australia. It’s a disease we cannot ignore. But together, we can change the outcomes.
While “Going Pink” this June, I’m raising money for life-changing research. Please donate to my page, you’ll be helping us step closer to our ultimate goal: zero deaths from breast cancer by 2030.
YOU can make a difference. Let me know if you want to GO PINK with me!
