My Story

I am taking part in Blackmores Sydney Running Festival 2018 to raise much needed funds for Cure Cancer Australia. 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 Cure Cancer Australia create the world we want to see. THANK YOU to all my past supporters with all the charities I have ran for in the past, in particular Cure Cancer Australia. As you know, this is the one close to my heart πŸ’œ. It’s that time of the year again, to help me raise money for Cure Cancer Australia. Eight years ago, I was blessed to have found my father and be able to make a connection with him, filling in those 30 odd years apart. September 2011, he lost his battle to Multiple Myeloma, a type of bone cancer. My step-father battles with cancer too but in his bladder for the last several years. Then in 2015 the cancer took a worse turn in one of his kidneys, which was removed. It has been a roller coaster ride for him, from battling it, to losing an organ, to being told he was in remission, to battling it again. Recently he tried a new treatment (botox) that the doctors thought would work. Instead, this treatment has made it worse. He starts up another round of chemotherapy soon. He is a survivor who continues to fight his cancer in his bladder. Cancer of any kind is a nasty disease that has touched us all. I will be supporting this great charity and I hope you will too will be part of this special journey with me. Please help me help those find a cure to this disease. Your small contributions will make a difference. Thank you for your support in advance, muchly appreciate it! Jules πŸ™πŸ»πŸ’›

About my cause: Cure Cancer Australia

Cure Cancer Australia is dedicated to funding crucial cancer research from Australia’s brightest emerging minds. We believe early-career researchers who offer new ideas and challenging perspectives are the key to advancing the fight against ALL types of cancer.
The funding landscape for early-career researchers is extremely competitive. Cure Cancer Australia provides the vital early-career funding that our emerging research innovators so desperately need. Without investment in their potentially life-saving research, there won't be a future pipeline for Australian cancer research.
To date, Cure Cancer Australia has invested close to $30 million to support more than 300 scientists and provide close to 500 research grants. Many of our alumni are now amongst the leaders in cancer research both in Australia and around the world.
We won't cure cancer without research and we cannot cure cancer without you. Help us to make this the last generation to die from cancer.
