Do you know that over 340 Australian’s are diagnosed with cancer every single day! That number is expected to grow to over 400 in just 6 years time. Those are scary numbers!
I am a cancer survivor and my experience taught me that we have a world class medical system in Australia where we have access to wonderful Doctors and Nurses who give us every chance of surviving. That is great news because it means more and more cancer patients will survive.
But there is a gap in the system. Pouring money into research does not help the person who is sitting in the chemotherapy ward at the local hospital right now! Patients and their families need support today, as well as a cure tomorrow.
This is why I am so proud to have founded and continue to be voluntarily involved with the Still I Rise Foundation.
