Why I am supporting Breast Cancer Network Australia

My Story

Greetings everyone! I am an avid supporter of Breast Cancer Network Australia (BCNA) and in March 2019 I will be embarking on an epic fundraising adventure. I will be part of a team of inspired individuals, challenging ourselves as we trek the Annapurna region. Together, our team will aim to fundraise over $80,000 for BCNA. This cause is very close to my heart as I am deeply grateful for the support I received from BCNA in early 2013 when I was diagnosed with breast cancer. At a time when I felt my future has become unclear and my mind was tormented with the worst possible outcome, I have found the information provided by BCNA and the documented experiences of women who had come before me, as my one true reliable source giving me understanding and hope for the future I so want to be present for. By challenging myself, I hope to inspire you… my friends and colleagues. From now until March 2019, I will be training in order to be fit and ready to take on this adventure. Now, your part is easy. All you need to do is share your good fortune with BCNA. I am hoping you will be so inclined and will make a tax-deductible donation to BCNA via this webpage. Not only will it count towards confirming my place in this challenge, but more importantly it will go a long way in ensuring BCNA is able to fund its programs and activities, and continues to inform, support, represent and connect Australians personally affected by breast cancer. The difference you will make means more than you know. You can also support me by encouraging others to get involved, too. Please email the link to my page to your friends and family, or share it on social media. Thank you for your generosity and support -- it means a lot to me. Together we can help Breast Cancer Network Australia create the world we want to see.

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.
