Cancer is tough, but we're tougher

In May 2021, I’m challenging myself to walk 35km as part of the Women’s Cancer Challenge.

I am doing the walk for myself as part of my breast cancer journey, and hoping to raise much-needed funds for women's cancer research  at the Harry Perkins Institute of Medical Research.

Being diagnosed with breast cancer turns your life upside down. The importance of early detection through advances in technology has seen increases in the survival  rate. The money raised  enables researchers to work hard on more breakthroughs into winning the war against cancer.

Let’s walk towards a cancer-free future – together.

Please help me, help the Perkins.
