Girlpower

I’m hosting a Girls’ Night In to help all Victorian women affected by cancer

Every year, 15,700 Victorian women are diagnosed cancer, and 6,000 of those will be breast or gynaecological cancers.

Thanks in part to generous Victorians, the good news is that the rate of women dying from cancer is declining. Throughout the last decade, the rate has been consistently decreasing by 1.5% per year. This is thanks to earlier detection of cancers through screening, reductions in tobacco use, and improvements in treatment.

I’m passionate about saving even more lives, so I'm helping Cancer Council Victoria by hosting a Girls’ Night In. It’s the perfect opportunity to catch up with the girls and celebrate our friendship while raising vital funds.

By supporting me, you’ll be funding ground-breaking cancer research, prevention programs and support services that offer a helping hand to all Victorian women affected by cancer.

 As a continued survivor,  I believe the more awareness and funding available; our daughters, neices, sisters, aunts, mothers and grand mothers will have greater chances to beat these hideous diseases that affect us terribly.  I survived and by some miracle had 3 children, yet I still think of those who didn't make it. I owe it to them to continue this on their behalf. I hope you will join me.

Thank you to my supporters!
