Running for a Cure

By Natasha Slepica


Together our flower power is creating a cancer free future

I’m showing my Flower Power by fundraising for The Daffodil Day Appeal, to support advancements in life-saving cancer research.  

Every year, approximately 50,000 people die from cancer in Australia. In 2018, my grandpa was one of those 50,000 people. 

This month, my grandma turns 80 and many, many of these years she shared with my grandpa. She was the love of his life and she took great care in looking after him every day they were together and especially towards the end of his battle with lung and skin cancer. I know he would have loved to have been here to celebrate this milestone with us. 

So, to celebrate the cherished time they had together and the many more years we wish they had, throughout the month of August, I am going to run 100km in order to raise money for cancer research and treatment. In doing this, I hope that many Australians can beat cancer and continue to share and celebrate these milestones with their families, for years to come. I know my grandpa is so incredibly grateful for all the love and care my grandma gave him and would be so proud of her. We all miss him dearly every day. 

Please get involved and drive the Power behind the Flower by donating and providing hope for a cancer-free future, so that all Australians, have the chance to share many more memories with their families for years to come. 

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