My Story

It's fifteen years since I was diagnosed with leukaemia. At the time Cancer Council NSW provided much needed information and support to me, my family and friends. I was lucky enough to take part in their consumer advocacy programs and give back through my time and skills. But this year, to mark my 15 year cancerversary, I am taking part in Blackmores Sydney Running Festival 2018 to raise money for Cancer Council NSW. Having been through the diagnosis and treatment for cancer, I understand how important their work is to people who have cancer. They taught me so much while volunteering in their advocacy programs, and this year I want to do something different to help. 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 Cancer Council NSW create the world we want to see.

About my cause: Cancer Council NSW

Our Mission

We are Australia’s leading cancer charity, uniting the community, providing support, investing in research and saving lives.

Every year in NSW alone, more than 48,000 new cases of cancer are expected to be diagnosed, and the impact on families, carers and communities is significant.

Together with our volunteers, supporters, stakeholders and staff, we are committed to reducing the impact of cancer on individuals and the community, and to lessening the burden for people affected by cancer.

We are the only organisation that works across every area of every cancer:

- conducting and funding world-class research that underpins our work across the cancer journey
- preventing cancer
- supporting people as they navigate the cancer journey
- advocating to ensure that governments take action on cancer.

We are there not only for those touched by cancer today, but to prevent and manage cancer for future generations.

We are a member of Cancer Council Australia, together with Cancer Councils from every state and territory across Australia. Cancer Council NSW is an independent charity and is 95% community funded. Our unique combination of local program delivery, community engagement and national influence enables everyone who cares about cancer to make the biggest possible difference.
