BSH 'Hope for a Cancer free future' Fundraiser

By Carly Duffus Join Me


Together we are creating a cancer free future.

We're fundraising for Daffodil Day, to support advancements in life-saving cancer research.  

The reality of breast cancer was still raw when I received my own diagnosis in 2020. I lost my mum to this disease just 4 years earlier. My world came crashing down, after living through mum's cancer journey and now my own, it was too much to bear.  I couldn't think straight, I developed high anxiety and was honestly scared of losing my life at 47 years old. Over the next 12 months I endured 4 surgeries, 6 months of chemotherapy and 6 weeks of intense daily radiation treatment.  Amongst many other things, I lost my hair, developed nose bleeds, had severe burns and stopped sleeping. I was admitted to hospital after each chemotherapy session for hydration becoming quite sick.

Although thankfully I'm now cancer free I'm at very high risk of it returning.  

Also a BIG reminder to please please get your health checks done when they are due.  I left my mammogram for 2 months in the middle of COVID.  Due to this my situation escalated.  

We all have been affected by this horrible disease in some way. This is where the Cancer Council comes in. They raise much needed funds for life-saving cancer research, cancer prevention and supporting people affected by cancer. They cannot do that without generous donations of people like us.

 So let's all get involved by donating and providing hope for a cancer free future, not only for those impacted by cancer, but for all Australians.

With your help, we're getting closer to a cancer free future
