My Story

I am taking part in Blackmores Sydney Running Festival 2017 to raise much needed funds for Chris O'Brien Lifehouse. Their work is really important, and I want to do what I can to help. But there is only so much I can do on my own. 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 Chris O'Brien Lifehouse create the world we want to see.

About my cause: Chris O'Brien Lifehouse

Our mission at Chris O’Brien Lifehouse is to improve the quality of life of cancer patients, carers and their families by advancing the understanding, diagnosis, treatment, cure and prevention of the disease.

Around one in two men and one in three women will get cancer. Every year in NSW alone more than 39,000 new cases of cancer are expected to be diagnosed – that is more than 100 every day.

Lifehouse represents a unique model of care and funding in Australia, as a not-for-profit hospital charity treating public and private patients. We have no shareholders and income is reinvested for the benefit of our patients.

At Lifehouse, the patient is at the centre of everything we do. We want to make things easier for people with cancer through integrated treatment, research, education, complementary therapies and support. Everything a patient needs is in one place, including allied health, complementary therapies and psychosocial support.

We also have a strong focus on educating the next generation of cancer clinicians and on medical research, including trials of new drugs, both by conducting our own research and by partnering with other institutions.
