My Story

"In 2017, it is estimated that the risk of an individual being diagnosed with cancer by their 85th birthday will be 1 in 2."
- Cancer Australia

Growing up, I always understood cancer to be a terrible, dangerous disease, but the real impact of cancer was something I couldn't fully grasp. It wasn't until my father was diagnosed with and later passed away from Lymphoma that the horrible reality of this condition set in.

Aside from being a life-threatening disease, even today's treatment options are risky and difficult. No one should have to go through even the easiest of treatments and no one should have to watch their loved ones suffer from this, in any capacity. It's life-changing and far too common.

In the years since my father passed away from Lymphoma, I've done what I can here and there to contribute to cancer research. Finally, I've decided to step up to the plate and commit to making a real, tangible difference by raising money for the Australian Cancer Research Foundation. I'm a scientist at heart and nothing gives me more hope than the incredible, ground breaking work done by research funded by foundations such as this. When they say their ultimate mission is to put themselves out of the job, it resonates with me. I want to rid the world of cancer, for good.

And it starts here.
