My Story

Like many of us, cancer has had a very personal affect on me. My grandmother died from ovarian cancer, and then I lost my mum to breast cancer 42 years ago when I was only 11 years old. Both will never be forgotten and are always in my heart. Treatment was different back then and kicking cancer into touch was more challenging, but thanks to all the hard work by the medics and researchers and all the really kind and generous donations by people like you, diagnosis and treatment have greatly improved and more and more people are living to tell of their experiences and contribute to ongoing research. This would not be possible without the continued contributions to fund new and innovative ways to treat us. When i was diagnosed with breast cancer and then BRCA1 gene mutation in 2019 i was stunned just like a large number of the population who will be touched in some way by cancer, but we can be thankful for progress in treatment and ongoing research. If you can make any donation, thank you, if you can't then please just know your body, family history and speak to the experts if any changes occur, I did and I'm eternally grateful to all those helping with my treatment.
