Why I am supporting Cure Cancer Australia

My Story

I met Lisa a few years ago when i took her pregnancy photos with her first born and then we met again with her second baby Lara (i obviously made a good impression;) every time i got to spend time with her we connected so easily and she always felt like a good old friend. I took this photo of Lisa and her gorgeous family just a few weeks before Lisa found out that she had cancer in her spine. With a newborn baby and a toddler i can only imagine the pain and heartbreak that Lisa and her family went through! Lisa was courageous enough to share her story including all of the ups and I’m guessing only some of the downs with us and we all followed her journey closely wishing her the best possible outcome. The good news is that Lisa has been cancer FREE for 12 months now and whilst she is still recovering from the scars left by numerous surgeries she sends a huge portion of her time campaigning for Cure Cancer Australia http://www.curecancer.com.au and organisation funding emerging researches - she does all of this as well as working and bringing up a young family! Today I spoke with Lisa on the phone, I knew that she was planning to run the Hill to Harbour (i had been considering it, but was being a bit lazy) . Today with some sadness she let me know that it has been much harder for her physically than she thought. So I told her that i would run if she couldn’t! So please put your hands in your pockets and donate what you can! We all know about cancer but when it happens to someone you know it really hits home!!

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.
