RACQ International Women's Day Fun Run 2021

I've pledged to raise at least $750

I will be taking part in the Mater Chicks in Pink Fun Run in memory of my Mum Dianne who lost her battle to breast cancer

I was 15 years old when I found out my Mum was diagnosed with terminal breast cancer. Mum was 53 years old and the healthiest, fittest person I knew. Mum had no signs or symptoms apart from on the dreaded day she discovered her lump. Before we knew it, Mum was having chemotherapy and radiation done to battle the disease. I later found out that Mum's cancer had metastasized through her breasts, under her armpits and into her lymph nodes which led to her brain.  Within 6 month of her diagnosis, I was farewelling Mum at her funeral. I was 15 at the time and had 5 other siblings who relied on Mum greatly. Mum was our only parent and did everything she could for us and everyone around her.
Unfortunately for many others, this is their reality aswell. Since Mum’s passing, one of the ways I’ve come to terms with her diagnosis and passing is taking part in the Mater Chicks in Pink Fun Run and meeting people with stories similar to mine. Unfortunately, there is so many people impacted by this horrific disease. Luckily, since Mums passing, treatment and support has improved significantly. Given this, survival rates have also improved significantly. To keep research progressing, treatment and support advancing, funds are needed.
This year I have decided to set myself a goal of $300 to achieve for when I take part in the run. If your able, I would love if you could donate a few dollars to help reach this goal so I can continue to support women who are affected by this disease. Every dollar goes a long way! Thank you for taking the time to read this, I love and appreciate you all.

$300 to $3000!

Friday 15th Jan
My initial goal was $300, which I was skeptical about reaching. Never did I think I would be able to raise this much money so thank you for all the support from those who have donated so far. I have set a new goal of $3,000 to achieve. If able, donating a few dollars will go a long way in breast cancer research and helping those affected by the disease. Sharing my page is also an awesome way of supporting me if you cannot afford to donate. Again, thank you to everyone who has helped me on this journey.

New goal!

Sunday 10th Jan
I’ve decided to change my goal to $750, given the generosity received so far. All I can say it thank you. I am so so grateful and appreciate each and everyone one of you. 

Thank you!

Sunday 10th Jan
I would like to say a massive thank you to everyone who has donated and helped me reach my goal! Please continue donating to this amazing cause. The more money raised, the more women and families we can help. 
Just so you have an idea:
$65 helps fund innovative research for chemotherapy
$110 helps restore a women’s confidence after breast removal surgery by purchasing them a mastectomy bra.
$170 helps restore a women’s confidence when they lose their hair due to chemotherapy by providing them with a scarf or wig to wear.
$235 helps fund research towards improving survival rates of breast cancer. 
Thank you again for all your support, every dollar goes a long way :) - Ally xx
