What doesn't kill you makes you stronger, right?!

That is the lesson in life I learnt the hard way after hearing the words "Young Lady, we need to talk.  You have cancer" (October, 2010).  Cancer changes your life.  But I am fortunate that cancer gave me a choice to use my experience to push myself to achieve goals in life that I may not of strived for before. Cancer has made me more driven and determined than ever before.

It is with this in mind that despite the best intentioned advice from countless friends and family members advising that the Kokoda Trail may in fact get the better of me, I am throwing caution to the wind.  Marking my 2 year anniversary (November, 2012) being cancer free I will be pushing myself to the limit to raise funds and awareness for a cause that is close to my heart (Cure Cancer). 

For those that know me well will understand that it is a close tie on what will be the biggest challenge - the grade 5/5 challenge or roughing it camping.  I had sore legs for over a week after walking down Table Mountain and my idea of a holiday is a 5 Star Resort.  But I am focused and determined to get fit and take on my next life changing challenge.

I had an amazing support network (family, friends, workplace and test cricket) that supported me during my battle with cancer, and I am now calling on everyone to get behind me and cheer me on as I tackle Kokoda. 

Find out more about Kokoda.

Thank you in advance for your support (and donations) :)

Cure Cancer Australia Foundation

Cure Cancer Australia Foundation

CURE CANCER AUSTRALIA'S focus is to find a cure for cancer.

Cure Cancer Australia invests exclusively in Australia’s brightest emerging researchers to combat all types of cancer.
Our funds have greatest impact in early career research, when different ideas and challenging perspectives burn brightest.
More Australians than ever before are being diagnosed with cancer. Finding ways to treat it is increasingly critical and research is the best weapon we have in the fight. But no-one can cure cancer by themselves. We need to work as a team.
It’s a huge task to raise the money we need for vital research and we can only do it with your help. You may choose to donate, fundraise via an existing event, join a Can Too Program, or create your own fundraising challenge or event. Whatever you choose, we’re here to support you every step of the way.
We cannot CURE CANCER without you. Let’s CURE CANCER Together.

Thank you for your support!
