Why I am supporting Breast Cancer Network Australia

My Story

Well my fundraising El Camino Trek is just over 6 weeks away. I would just like to again say thank you to everyone who has donated & supported my fundraising. I set myself a goal of $4000 however due to overwhelming support & generosity I have received, my total fundraising is now at $9093 😳which is incredible. This goes towards helping so many women, men & their families affected by breast cancer. Again thank you so much. HOWEVER IT IS NOT TOO LATE TO DONATE - any amount will be gratefully appreciated. I have generated this page so as to play a part in helping Breast Cancer Network Australia (BCNA). BCNA provide amazing support & resources to women & men diagnosed with breast cancer & their families. As a lot of you are aware, I was diagnosed with breast cancer in May 2013, going through 12 months of treatment. BCNA was (& is for most) the first place I looked for reassurance & answers. A lot of us have been personally touched by breast cancer in some way and BCNA is a fantastic resource that helps all those diagnosed, their families, friends get through a really difficult time in their lives. I know I have been there and BCNA was my go to for a different kind of support than family & friends provide and answers to so many questions and most of all reassurance. This fundraising journey, the Pink Lady El Camino Trek in May 2018 is to raise money that will go towards things like providing the newly diagnosed with a My Journey Kit, which is BCNA's free information resource (worth $55). I am self-funding my trip and trekking to raise as much money as I can for BCNA. You can help too, by donating to my page. Any amount you can donate will make a difference to numerous women, men and their families touched by breast cancer. You can also support me by emailing the link to my page to your friends and family, or share it on social media. Thank you for your generosity and support from myself and BCNA. Carolyn

About El Camino

As part of Breast Cancer Network Australia’s Pink Lady El Camino Trek you will join a group of inspiring individuals dedicated to supporting all Australians affected by breast cancer.

On arrival in Madrid, Spain’s bustling capital city, you will set off on a guided tour, exploring the city’s highlights from past to present. You will then travel beyond city limits to embark on the Camino de Santiago. 

From Sarria to Santiago, you will trek under the shade of old oak trees into peaceful hamlets set against the rolling green backdrop of Galicia. At night, you will experience Spain’s colourful culture and cuisine. 

On what other adventure can you follow in the footsteps of the Romans, the Knights Templar, pilgrims and modern day adventurers to Santiago de Compostela?

Best of all, every step you take helps raise vital funds for BCNA to provide free programs, resources and support to all Australians affected by breast cancer.

About my cause: Breast Cancer Network Australia

BCNA is the peak national organisation for Australians affected by breast cancer, and consists of a network of more than 120,000 members and 300 Member Groups. More than 90 per cent of our members have had a diagnosis of breast cancer, and the remaining members have had a personal experience with breast cancer through a family member or friend.

We are represented by the Pink Lady silhouette, symbolic of our focus on the women diagnosed with breast cancer and all those around her.
