One in two Australians will be diagnosed with cancer by 85, there’s every chance your life will be affected. No matter who you are, Daffodil Day is for everyone.

August 26th is 9th Anniversary since I lost my Dad (63) to side effects of Leukemia ...a blood cancer. August 9th was 3yrs since my Aunt Rosie (62) passed away Lung cancer.

This year my family (and hopefully a few more friends will join)  have created a team for the Relay for Life.

Our team is Colours of Courage - to represent all the different colours of cancer. In my immediate and extended family - we have had Leukemia, Brain, Breast, Head , Prostrate, Sarcoma, Ovarian and Lung Cancer.

I have had friends that lost their lives or a loved one to Pancreatic Cancer , Lymphoma, Leimosarcoma, Liver Cancer and Melanoma.

I have friends that have /are been treated with various Sarcoma, Thyroid cancer and Stomach and Bone cancers (secondary to Breast cancer).

The theme this year is Race for the cure .

My hope is for better treatments, hope for more survivors and hope for a cancer-free future. Help us beat cancer.

 Your support will make a difference for cancer patients and their families all over Australia.

$5 can help us give a newly diagnosed cancer patient important support and information resources to help them through their cancer journey.

$10 can help offer free exercise programs to help cancer patients build strength and fitness during and after treatment.

$25 can help transport cancer patients to and from hospital for treatment.

$50 can help the Cancer Council Helpline 13 11 20 provide free and confidential information and support on all aspects of cancer.

$100 can help provide free accommodation to cancer patients, their families and carers during treatment.
