Why I am supporting Breast Cancer Network Australia

My Story

I am taking part in Journey Through Nepal to raise much needed funds for Breast Cancer Network Australia. As most of you know, I was diagnosed with breast cancer 7 years ago. After my initial treatment all my results suggested that it was a very early cancer, and there was over a 99% chance that I was cured. I threw myself into Dragon Boat paddling and had many amazing adventures, including the journey of training and trying out for the Australian Dragon Boat team. Unfortunately, that was not where my journey was destined to lead me. A nagging pain near my shoulder blade turned out to be a large hole in one of my ribs. The cancer had spread to my bones, lungs and liver, and within two weeks I had fractured all my lumbar vertebrae just by turning over in bed. Since then I have had several rounds of chemo, radiation and hormonal treatments. At last, I’m starting to feel like my old self, which means it’s time to set another lofty goal. I’ve started preparations to trek in Nepal in March 2019, and along the way I aim to raise $4000 for BCNA. You can help too, by donating to my page. Any amount you can give makes a difference! 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.

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.
