I have two causes: one is for my brother in-law who has cancer. He and his wife have three wonderful children, but he has been the home carer for one of their little ones who has Rubenstein Tabyl Syndrome and hasn’t been well most of her life. He now has cancer and I have a goal to raise as much money as possible for the family to make things a little easier for them. They don’t want me to draw attention to just them so I am not naming them or showing pictures or videos.
The second cause I want to raise money for is The Cancer Council Queensland. The Cancer Council of Queensland is doing research to find a cure. I BELIEVE THIS IS THE ANSWER. The other thing that the Cancer Council Queensland is famous for is that they offer much needed counselling to people with cancer.
The Council says, “Medical Research has successfully beaten most disease - it will beat cancer.” Cancer Council Queensland raises funds, which are dedicated to eliminating cancer and diminishing suffering from cancer through research, treatment, patient care, prevention and early detection.
"One in two Queenslanders will be diagnosed with cancer before the age of 85. Unfortunately, we all know someone who has been affected by cancer".
Rochelle was 22 years old when diagnosed with bowel cancer. Six months later she died with her mum, Sandra, by her side. Shelly died at an age when she should have had her whole life ahead of her. Those closest to her say she embodied everything that's wonderful about youth. She was bright, optimistic and full of dreams for her future. Until cancer took it all away.
There is not a single day Sandra doesn't think about what might have been if Shelly had been diagnosed earlier. Sandra doesn't just mourn the loss of her child - she grieves for the life Shelly never got to live.
Shelly always had a bucket list, the things that she wanted to do and nothing was going to stop her. After she got sick, all she wanted was more time. She still hadn't done all the things she wanted to do.
