My Inspiration for "Challenge In the Tropics"

I would like to extend an invitation for you to join our fundraising cycle ride through Far North Queensland to raise funds for Cancer research.

This April, I will be embarking on an epic challenge which is close to my heart. I have committed to join other enthusiastic volunteers in April, to cycle through far North Queensland-a journey of 650kms over five days-as part of the ‘2022 Challenge in the Tropics’- to raise vital funds for game-changing cancer research projects at the Mater foundation.

I`m participating in this massive adventure on behalf of my sister-in-law, Tania, who was first diagnosed with breast cancer in 2013. Tania is a devoted wife, and mother of two wonderful kids-Luke 16, and Ally14. Her doctors advised her that she would need surgery and treatment, but they were confident she would then be cancer free.

This was not to be however, as, over the next three years, during her regular check-ups, Tania`s doctors found that she had developed bone, liver, and brain cancer. Again, fighting against the odds, with chemo, medication, the love and support of her family and friends, and her own tenacious determination, Tania continues the battle.   

Tania advocates for the vital research into cancer. In the nine years she has been receiving treatment, she has seen firsthand the advances in cancer treatment and research, giving HOPE to herself and countless others. Tania is my greatest source of inspiration. One of the most courageous gutsy women who never gives up, my hero.

Every breakthrough in cancer research potentially leads to cancer patients having more time to make precious memories with their loved ones. Giving them hope, that each new treatment promises a better quality of life.

While scientific pursuits are embarked upon with noble intentions, the realities of keeping research labs operating and the lights on, means that researchers need money-and this is where you come in.

Together, we are hoping to raise $500,000 to fund projects into melanoma, breast, prostate, and ovarian cancers. Could you please help me reach my goal of $5,000 by making a donation to help rid the world of cancer

Will you support my fundraising?

In May, I’ll be joining the 2022 Challenge in the Tropics, cycling upto 680 kms over five days.

Why am I taking on this challenge?

Because I’m committed to making a real impact for cancer research at Mater.

As part of the challenge I’m aiming to raise valuable funds to support the work of Mater Research—Mater’s world-class research institute that’s investing in some game-changing work into the causes, treatment and prevention of cancer.

And this is where I need your help.

Together, we can help to give more families more time together; to make more memories.
