Why I want to help cure cancer

In 2014 our family received devastating news that my brother-in-law had an incurable lymphoma. An incredibly healthy, smart, intelligent man who practices as a GP, he is dad to 3 young children. As he was launching into chemo just a few weeks later, I was diagnosed with a rare skin cancer. It was not life threatening but it lead to a year of confusion, fear and 2 surgeries. For us as a family it has been a heart breaking journey & a stark reminder of how life can change so quickly. It has also opened my eyes to how many people are affected by cancer in one form or another.

Being able to use the tour to share my experience and raise funds for cancer research is humbling. It is a privilege to be able to make a contribution, however small, to help rid the world of this terrible disease that causes so much pain to so many people.


Great cause! well done and congrats.
