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’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.

Please help me, help the Perkins.
