Susie’s BCF Fundraiser

By Susie Germano

I'm now a Zero Hero

I've decided to colour my hair because I want a world where there are ZERO deaths from breast cancer. I believe every death from breast cancer is one too many. To achieve this, I’m raising funds for more research. All donations made to this page will help do exactly that. 

The National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF) is Australia’s leading national body funding game-changing breast cancer research with money raised entirely by the Australian public.

I really believe research is the best way to prevent deaths, and improve how breast cancer is diagnosed, managed and treated. NBCF is working towards one goal: zero deaths from breast cancer by 2030. Together we can help them get there.

Click 'Donate' to make a secure online donation and help me reach my goal. Every donation, big or small, will help me get there. Please donate today.

All donations over $2 are tax deductible and you will be issued with a tax-deductible receipt via email as soon as you make your donation.

Thank you so much for your support!

My Updates

It started with a phone call

Wednesday 6th Oct
2021 has brought my family many pandemic challenges, but we didn’t think that mum’s diagnosis of breast cancer was going to be added to the list.  I’d taken a few days off work, in between lockdowns, when mum rang and told me the news that something suspicious had been detected. It was a horrible shock and unfortunately not the first cancer diagnosis for my mum. Lucky for her, and us, we have a brilliant GP who referred her straight onto one of Australia’s most accomplished  breast cancer surgeons, Dr Chantel Thornton (also my high school chemistry and physics buddy). Stage 2, ductal carcinoma in situ, hormone positive: all the things that you want to hear for a breast cancer diagnosis. I don’t know if you can call it lucky, it’s not lucky to have a cancer diagnosis, but we feel fortunate that mum was able to have surgery and treatment (during a pandemic) with a great health outcome.  

Research dollars make all the difference to positive clinical outcomes. 

Please give, if you can, and if you can’t I hope that sharing in our experience can give something back to you. Susie xx
