Rubi Rosenow

I’ve made a pledge to GO PINK by colouring my hair!

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.

And I’m GOING PINK for the incredible women in my family past and present who have bravely battled this disease and to help raise funds for game-changing research into early detection and preventative treatments for breast cancer, which is vital to increasing survival rates.

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.

By donating to my page and you’ll be helping the National Breast Cancer Foundation step closer to their goal: zero deaths from breast cancer by 2030.

Please help me make a difference & Let me know if you want to GO PINK with me!

What if I’m sick?

Wednesday 19th May
A couple of weeks back while in the shower rubi had payed more attention than usual to her hair falling out (general breakage and hair loss) I didn’t think to much into why she was so interested. Anyway fast forward to school drop off the next morning “mum how come my hair was falling out in the shower last night” “that just happens rube it’s just breakage from your hair being dry” Rubi then continues “but how do you no that’s why? what if I’m sick?” and then it hits me I knew exactly where she was going with her questions! “What makes you think your sick?” To Rubi’s reply “well when people have cancer it makes there hair fall out so what if I’m sick?” Never in my wildest dreams did I imagine having this conversation with my 6year old but here we were.  “Rubes cancer doesn’t make people’s hair fall out sometimes when people have cancer they have to have treatment to try and make them better and it’s the stuff they give them to try help that actually causes there hair to fall out” and with that she went about her day. You can try as hard as you can to explain cancer to kids but there will always be endless questions.

H is for Hope

Tuesday 11th May
In the past year Rubi’s world was flipped upside down by the passing of her poppy to cancer! And thus here we are!  How do you explain cancer to your six year old?  How do you explain the battle of the road ahead, the medications and treatments, the time that’s not guaranteed? How do you explain to your six year old something that we as adults and human beings still no so little about and while we were supported and had some great information given to us in reality there is no simple way to explain cancer to kids but to just be completely honest! It’s no secret to everyone who knows Rubi how much of a massive hearted old soul she is and After many talks and taking it in, in her own way of course then the questions changed! “What can I do to help?” “how can I raise money to help people with cancer?” “how can I help get money so scientists can find a cure?” She spent a lot of time coming up with ideas of what she can do to help and i really had no idea where to start, and then the nbcf fundraiser popped up. GREAT STARTING POINT, I took the idea to Rubi who was over the moon with the idea she found her way to help. Little did she know how important and personal this fundraiser would be! Rubi’s late great nanny Ivy and two of her great aunts (jodie & sue) have battled this horrible disease we are so incredibly lucky to have them still here with us today! With a family history of breast cancer early detection is a crucial part for today’s and future generations!
