This is my 3rd year walking for womens cancer.

Walking to Help Save Future Lives

When I was in my 20s, my Mum was diagnosed with breast cancer.  At the time, I knew very little about the disease.  My Mum was one of the lucky ones - she was diagnosed early, but I witnessed the side effects of the radiation treatment she went through to beat the disease and it certainly wasn't a walk in the park.

Last year, someone I used to know well when I lived in London passed away.  She was younger than me and had 2 early teenage children who are now living without their Mum to guide them through life.  She was originally diagnosed with breast cancer but it was too late and it had spread to her lungs.

I am walking to raise money for cancer research so hopefully one day we will be able to have a vaccination or some preventative measure so that no-one will have to go through the trauma of cancer treatment or lose their wife/partner/sister/mum/daughter to this horrible disease.

Cancer is tough, but we're tougher

In May 2020, I’m challenging myself to walk 35km in one day as part of the Hawaiian Walk for Women’s Cancer. I’m doing it to raise much needed funds for women’s cancer research right here in WA at the Harry Perkins Institute of Medical Research.

There is so much more to be done to ensure that the women of WA – our mothers, sisters, daughters, friends and loved ones – living with cancer stay with us for as long as possible. I am training and fundraising in the lead up to the event. I'd be so grateful for your support. If you can't join me (I'd love the company), please give generously to my donation page.

Please help me, help the Perkins.

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