My Story

In early 2014 my grandmother was diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma (Bone Marrow Cancer). Since then she has been fighting strong and is still undergoing chemotherapy. Her battle has naturally come with it's ups and downs, however irrespective of the challenge, she has fought hard. Having experienced how cancer affects the lives of our loved ones, family and friends. I want to raise funds for the Australian Cancer Research Foundation (ACRF) as they have been actively funding research projects to help find a cure/treatment/cause for cancer. Specifically with their contributions (totalling $5.5m) to the researchers at Walter and Eliza Hall Institute (WEHI), Australian Centre for Blood Diseases, Monash University and the Alfred Hospital who investigated the ‘survival proteins’ that keep myeloma cells alive, allowing the cancer to persist. I am taking part in the Blackmores Sydney Marathon to raise money for the ACRF to help them further their support for vital cancer research. Together we can help Australian Cancer Research Foundation (ACRF) create the world we want to see. Please donate 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!

About my cause: Australian Cancer Research Foundation (ACRF)

Australian Cancer Research Foundation (ACRF) believe that a world without cancer is possible. It is a bold statement but one that we are committed to.

We can’t do this without you. Every day our supporters help to accelerate what can be achieved by giving Australia’s best scientists the technology they need to outsmart through better detection, prevention and treatment.

We are passionate about innovation and impact and believe accelerating cancer research is vital. Thanks to our generous and committed supporters we award grants between $1-10M each year for major equipment and technology. We are the only charity in Australia that does this, many fund the person (the researcher) but no-one else provides the cutting-edge equipment they need.

Together we can outsmart cancers, and we won’t stop until we do.

If you have any questions, call our fundraising team on 1300 884 988 or email Thank you!
