I was recently touched by cancer and am currently being cared for at the Olivia Newton-John Cancer Wellness and Research Centre at the Austin Hospital. I urge all my sisters to check their breasts regularly as early detection has a much greater chance of being treated successfully.

The ONJ centre has provided me with an immense amount of support and care of which I would not have been able to afford otherwise and has made a difference to my physical, mental, and social well-being.

As a way to give back to the centre, and to make sure that others who are diagnosed with cancer receive access to the brilliant programs and treatment that I have been so fortunate to receive and so I will be participating in the Wellness Walk and Research Run October 6th in 2019. The money we raise will support ground breaking research and provide access to world-leading wellness and supportive care, all of which have impacted my treatment plan in an incredibly positive way.

The ONJ centre relies heavily on philanthropic grants and fund raising events such as this one to allow it to run and function in the way that it does. I have first hand experience of how effective this centre is to healing and providing the best possible environment for this to take place in. I have been able to access, acupuncture treatment, oncology massage, art therapy classes, Yoga, an exercise program tailored for me and a nutrition and diet workshop.

The journey to win over cancer begins with a step. Together lets help people win over and live better with cancer. Please help me by giving whatever you can. Thank you for your generosity.
