Tamara's Pink Ribbon Morning Tea

Kitchener Pink Ribbon Morning Tea!!

This year I am hosting a Pink Ribbon Morning Tea event because I want to make a real difference to Australians affected by breast cancer. All donations made to this page will help do exactly that. 

I am hosting my morning tea in support of my friend Kathryn, after witnessing her breast cancer journey at only 34 years old. This morning tea is being held not only for her, but in support of the 15,000 women who are diagnosed with breast cancer in Australia every year.

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!

Kathryn's Breast Cancer Story

Friday 30th Sep
"I was never going to share my journey on social media but as a young woman going through breast cancer treatment I have struggled with many parts of this journey. #Checkyourbreasts
I was diagnosed in March 2020 and was devastated knowing what my family would have to go through (my mum had breast cancer when I was 19)
I have so far had two surgeries and 3 out of 4 rounds of chemo, countless scans and appointments, ongoing physio on my arm/shoulder, genetic testing, more surgery to come and will have hormone blocking drugs for the next ten years, I am currently faced with deciding whether or not to go through radiation treatment after chemo as recommended by my medical team.
My body will never be the same and my choices as a woman have been taken away, I am blessed to have started my family young and have three beautiful children but even though my family was already complete it's hard to accept I no longer have that choice because of the chemo and hormone drugs.
One thing cancer has taught me other than facing mortality at age 34 is that when it matters people are there to support you, I have amazingly supportive family and friends, amazing coworkers and extended support throughout my community. Having cancer during Covid has been tough as no one is allowed support people and visitors in the hospital but everyone has managed to show their support as best they can, and I am so grateful.
Breast cancer is one of the most commonly diagnosed cancers, approx. 53 people in Australia per day are diagnosed and 8 die from breast cancer per day, it is the second leading cause for cancer deaths in women but Australia has one of the highest survival rates in the world, early detection has increased 10 year survival rates to 83%, also there is a miss conception that its largely genetic, it's not, less than 10% of breast cancers are genetic.
Please check your breasts, get to know how they feel so that you know when they change and get checked as soon as possible, early detection can save your life.
Scars will heal and hair will grow back, I WILL be here for my family, cancer won't win."
