I'm walking to support local families impacted by cancer
I'm walking for my grandmother, the survivor, my God mother who passed away much too soon and so many of my patients who I have laughed, cried and grieved with. I hope to keep them in my mind as I enjoy a day with friends to raise money for a worthy cause.
I'm fundraising to support the Albury Wodonga Regional Cancer Centre Trust Fund. Regional people deserve the very best in treatment and care, just like people in capital cities.
Every cent I raise will stay in our region to help local people impacted by cancer. People going through the cancer journey should be able to do it close to home, where they can be supported by their family, friends and communities.
The funds we raise through the Sunshine Walk will help pay for new equipment for earlier diagnosis and treatment. It will pay for staff training, so the local workforce can stay up to date with the rapidly changing world of cancer treatment. It will be invested in research, providing local people access to national drug trials, and it will support wellness services, like psychology, exercise programs and support groups.
Everyone in our community knows someone affected by cancer, so let's come together to support this vital local service. Every dollar counts!
