I'm walking in memory of those I have loved and lost, and in the hope that any families who are plunged into the despair of dealing with this illness are supported by AWRCC and its wonderful, beautiful staff.
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!
