Girls Night In PJ Party

By Yvonne Richards

What would you do if the Big Bad Wolf Knocked on YOUR door?

You never image you will hear those three words. "You have cancer."

That happens to other people.

Not me.

In November 2015 a Big Bad Wolf came knocking on my door. Well, he huffed, and he puffed. Little did he know that behind that door I was not alone. Either side Brett and Lizzie supported the frame and Anthony supported Lizzie. Word soon got out and before we knew the house was packed to the rafters with family, friends, work mates, doctors’ nurses and so many more.

That Big Bad Wolf really rocked our foundations, but it appears that our house was not made of sticks.

It was reassuring to know that The Cancer Council never rests, every minute, every hour, every day to work on research and treatment for all types of cancer. If that Big Bad Wolf comes knocking on YOUR door, The Cancer Council will be with you all the way, every minute, every hour and every day.

I am a firm believer that we CAN “make a difference”. So, it is time to jump onto the fund-raising wagon again.  This year I have chosen “Girls Night In” as my major fund raiser.  It’s a great way to catch up with friends and help raise funds for the 20,000 women who will be diagnosed with gynaecological and breast cancer over the next 12 months.

In 2017 that Big Bad Wolf stopped his huffing and puffing. I opened the door and found a note and it read

" It’s over lady, you and all your mates won "

I am officially in remission.


If you unable to make it to our “Girls Night in PJ Party” you may like to donate on my donate on my fundraising page?

You can donate any amount you like. You do not have to click on the set figures on the page.

$5 would be fabulous.  Hope you can make it for a great “Girls Night In”.

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.


Thank you to my supporters!
