Beyond Breast Cancer
My name is Nancy and on February 2nd 2017 I was diagnosed with Stage IV metastatic breast cancer. Up until that moment of my life I was oblivious to what having breast cancer meant , let alone metastatic breast cancer. It had spread to my lymph nodes, lungs, liver and bones. I've been lucky and blessed to have had at my disposal a wonderful oncology team who with their help, I'm still here ....not just alive but thriving, enjoying good health and doing everything any other normal healthy person does. Garvan’s Breast cancer research receives some government funding for established research projects, however in addition to this Garvan needs the community’s support to fund novel, early-stage research to make those leaps and bounds in both advancement and breakthroughs that we desperately need right now! Everyday... I,like tens of thousands of Australian women wake up praying that a new drug is both on the horizon or not too far off to enable us both good health and to give us more time with our children and grandchildren.
Currently I'm a participant of a clinical trial which is proving effective. You can't imagine my gratitude.
Because of their help I want to help the Garvan Institute of medical research raise funds for breast cancer research so that we can wake up in a world where no woman needs to die of it but perhaps die with it....at a rIpe old age. I'd like to see Breast Cancer treated like diabetes....a manageable condition not a death sentence.
And so for the girlfriend's I've lost to this disease, and the promise I made them " that I will do something about this" I've joined Garvan Institute of medical research to help them fundraise.
For every dollar Garvan receives from government funding and grants they need to raise an additional dollar just to maintain the research they currently undertake.
All donations are tax deductible and you will receive a receipt upon donation. Your donations go directly to Garvan Institute and not a third party.
Please help me by giving whatever you can.and let's go Beyond Breast Cancer and zero deaths by 2030 or sooner.
Please share this page to get the word out to as many as possible.
