Why I am supporting Breast Cancer Network Australia

My Story

Slightly Mad!! A little Crazy!! You bet!! But a Trek Through Nepal!! What was I thinking?? I want to honour and pay tribute to all the amazing women I know that have been touched by breast cancer and what better way than to raise funds for an organization like Breast Cancer Network Australia (BCNA) - and what better way than to participate in the Journey Through Nepal Trek to challenge myself and to inspire and give hope to other amazing women undertaking their own journeys. I’d really appreciate your support – whether it’s by way of a donation to my page, encouraging others to get involved, or emailing the link to my page to your friends and family and sharing on social media – together we can all make a difference. Just over a year ago I was diagnosed with breast cancer – thankfully I’m now feeling great, and feeling very blessed - and so grateful for the resources I received from BCNA. I’m so grateful too that I delved a little deeper into the article about the Nepal Trek fundraising opportunity – but more than anything, I’m grateful to the room full of women who inspired me with their strength and courage and gave me the courage to take up the challenge of raising funds for BCNA by way of the amazing Journey Through Nepal - definitely the scariest and most exciting challenge of my life. With my help and your help, BCNA can continue to support, inform, represent and connect Australians affected by breast cancer with their brilliant work on all fronts – from lobbying Government, to providing a Helpline, to the Pink Buns and Pink Sports field activities and so much more. By raising funds for BCNA we can change lives. The resources and support BCNA can provide as a result of this challenge can really change someone’s breast cancer journey. By raising the $4,000 required for this trip we can provide 72 women newly diagnosed with the My Journey Kit, which many call their lifeline – it certainly made a difference to me and was my go-to guide. Thankyou for your support and generosity – I really appreciate it - it means a lot to me. I promise - I’ll do you proud!! ALL monies raised go to BCNA – the fundraising in no way contributes to my Nepal Trek.

About Journey Through Nepal

This adventure takes you on a journey through Nepal’s mountainous terrain and beautiful countryside. You will get a glimpse of life as a monk, attend peaceful Buddhist ceremonies and learn meditation techniques at the Neydo Monastery, where you will have the opportunity to stay one night.

With stunning Himalayan views, high passes, traditional teahouses, tiny hamlets, prayer flags and hot springs, the Annapurna region is among the best trekking destinations in the world.

You will discover the history and culture of Nepal’s colourful and chaotic capital city and explore some of the incredible sites on our city tour.

Best of all, by taking on this challenge you will help BCNA support Australians affected by breast cancer.

About my cause: Breast Cancer Network Australia

Breast Cancer Network Australia (BCNA) works to ensure that Australians affected by breast cancer receive the very best support, information, treatment and care appropriate to their individual needs.

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.
