I’ve signed up to the RACQ International Women’s Day Fun Run!
I'm raising funds to support women with breast cancer, providing things like counselling, wigs and mastectomy bras. As little as $58 can make a profound impact and take some of the stress off women with breast cancer and their families. Will you help me?
This is something I have been thinking about doing since my Aunty Ros passed away 8 years ago from an aggressive form of breast cancer. I read something that said if you have thought about doing it more than twice, it’s a huge sign to just do it.
My gorgeous Mum has donated her time to the local community of Port Stephens by taking women to breast cancer appointments and treatment in Newcastle. She has also been involved in numerous fundraising events for breast cancer in honour of her sister (my Aunty).
You can imagine the surprise to our family when Mum was diagnosed just before Christmas with invasive ductal cancer. We are confident the cancer was found early in a routine mammogram. Now Mum is the one needing to be taken to appointments and needing support services like what Mater Chicks in Pink provide.
This charity is important to me because the funds raised go to useful and much needed support services.
I haven’t ever completed a 10km fun run but I wanted to do something constructive to help given I am willing and able. We all need a little help once in a while.
If you could help me by making a donation, I’d really appreciate your support.
Thanks, Sal x
