Cancer ends with me!

2021 is my time to do something big for our mums, sisters, daughters, friends and loved ones living with cancer. I’m doing this Walk because no one should have to hear those two terrible words, “It’s cancer.” I'm walking in honour of a handful of women past and present...... Mary (Mum), Libby, Kylie, Nicole, Carol,  Christine, Karine, Shelley, Dawn, Judi, and equally my indigenous sisters, Rebecca, Kerry, Bec and Samantha, who are unfortunately four times more likely to die from breast cancer than non-indigenous women. No other Australian study into indigenous tumour biology has ever been undertaken, so this is going to be the first research of its kind and  it's all happening right here in WA at the Perkins!

 I am lucky to work here at the Perkins, so I see first hand exactly what impact the fundraising has on our research. Just look at the "Bee Venom" research, it's a world first and it happened right here in Perth!

So this year, I’m committing to help the amazing women’s cancer researchers at WA’s Harry Perkins Institute of Medical Research. I’m training, fundraising and walking to support this cause. And I’d be so grateful for your support.

The Perkins is dedicated to helping the women in our lives. They’re focused on pioneering medical breakthroughs and discovering new treatments for this disease and they won’t stop until cancer is history. That means so much to me. Please help me, help them.

Let’s do this. Because cancer ends with me.

Cheers Steve
