Why I am supporting Australian Cancer Research Foundation (ACRF)

My Story

With the help of my workplace at Echuca College, the students and I are wanting to make a difference and help out-smart cancer. My father died of cancer when I was 15 years old. My mother’s grandmother died of Ovarian Cancer when my grandmother and her sister were young. They died of the same disease. In the 1990's, my mother, her youngest sister and one of my cousins all had breast cancer. In 2014, when my mother was diagnosed with Ovarian Cancer, she was contacted by the Peter MacCallum Cancer Clinic. They felt that due to the high incidence of related cancers in her family, she should be genetically tested for the BRCA gene mutation. When her results were positive, her seven children were then advised to have the same genetic test. So far, six of us have been tested and I am the only one to get a negative result. My brother was diagnosed with prostate cancer before the genetic testing was done. All of my sisters have taken drastic steps to reduce their risks of getting these cancers. I am taking part in Cut or colour for ACRF to raise much needed funds for Australian Cancer Research Foundation (ACRF). Their work is really important, and I want to do what I can to help. But there is only so much I can do on my own. Thank you for your generosity and support -- it means a lot to me and the Echuca College Community. Together we can help Australian Cancer Research Foundation (ACRF) create the world we want to see.
