I'm taking part in Bandanna Day to stand up to cancer!
I’m taking part in Canteen’s Bandanna Day this year to support young people when cancer crashes into their world.
Canteen is the game changer. They help young people cope with cancer in their family, rebuild their foundations and connect with others in the same boat.
Please help me to reach my goal and together we can take a stand for young people affected by cancer.
Thank you for your support!

The whySaturday 26th Sep
I was asked to write why your support is significant to me raising money for Canteen-an organisation providing support and care for young people and relatives dealing with cancer.
What came to mind is quality , quality time, quality care , quality services and support for the patients ,family and medical professionals dealing with this horrible disease.
I draw my inspiration from my friend Vien who despite having HCC and breast cancer continues to be the incredible Aunt, Sister, Daughter , Friend and fabulous MRI radiographer. This is for you my "uber glam " friend even when you lost all your hair.
For Gary O' Brien in NSW who up until 4 weeks ago was making more plans to travel more the world, to see grand children in Darwin and Tasmania, was providing care and companionship for Army veterans having been a medic in the military himself. To the best friend a girl could have, as you undergo aggressive chemo and radiation therapy for metastatic prostate cancer even though you had all the "check ups".
As you temporarily wish those impressive side burns(aka lamb chops) farewell, this is for you.
For my grandmother, who after some chemo decided it was quality and not quantity she wanted. She packed her bag , took her passport out of her bottom draw and headed for Europe to see family and friends ,having resided in Africa for many years after having to leave Poland during the second world war. It was 4 types of cancer that ravaged her body but never broke her spirit.
I am hoping to make a little difference with your donations and shaving off my hair.
No helmet hair for me for the next few months after horse riding.
Thanking you in advance.
