I've pledged to raise at least $750

I’ve signed up to the RACQ International Women’s Day Fun Run!

I'm raising funds to support women with breast cancer now and into the future by funding breast cancer research that focuses on improving survival rates, working toward a world where ALL women diagnosed with breast cancer survive.

As little as $65 can make a profound impact and take some of the stress off women with breast cancer and their families. Will you help me?

2Yrs Since Diagnosis

Thursday 28th Jan
2 Yrs ago I got the call back that set my life in a spin. I had put off getting a mammogram way too long (especially since my sister had breast cancer herself 10 yrs ago). In the 6 -12 months before my diagnosis I had a few instances of female intuition moments but I kept pushing them aside and not acting on them. Despite these knowing pangs, when I finally went for my mammogram I never thought it would be the start of a world wind 12 months of surgeries, chemo, radiation and more medications than I had taken in all of my 50 years put together. It literally happens in a heart beat. One day you're fine, the next you're heading to hospital for surgery and it's all down hill from there. For awhile at least!
I consider myself one of the lucky ones. My mum and partner were with me every step of the way and I have a group of ultra supportive friends who helped keep me sane throughout the treatment months and rallied to my call to arms to keep me walking as long as possible. I'll never forget their kindness and support during that turbulent time. That year we put together a team for charity walk that took us on a 30km trek up the Sunshine Coast beaches and formed a bond between us that won't be broken. I managed to walk about 13 km that day despite having to have a transfusion the day before and it was all thanks to these girls who all made the 30km themselves. These are my Stroll Sisters and I'm calling them to arms again. I would love it if more of my friends and family joined us this time.
