Community kindness profoundly touched Bonnie, a young mum battling breast cancer. Thank you for your generosity.
Life is looking brighter for Bonnie because of donors like you
Two years ago, when I was 41 years old, I found a suspicious lump in my breast.
When the test results came back, my worst fears were confirmed. I’ll never forget being told I had cancer.
I went to pieces.
I was so scared.
Shane and I had to tell our three young kids that night. It was such a hard conversation, but they were so strong and brave.
During chemotherapy and radiation, I kept working. I was exhausted, but the bills didn’t stop for cancer – nothing does.
Since then, I have shared my story publically to raise awareness. I encourage women to self-check and have free breast screen tests from the age of 40.
Early detection can save lives.
Just like you, I want to help other people going through cancer. I won’t let my battle be for nothing.
Life is finally starting to return to normal for me – but I’ll always worry about my cancer coming back.
Thanks to donors like you, I will have access to the best cancer technology
I was deeply moved to learn that kind-hearted donors were doing their part to raise $360,000 for new breast cancer equipment.
I’m so grateful for your support. If I need more breast cancer tests in the future, I can access the latest 3D technology. Thank you!
This encouraged me to donate an additional $4,000 for the 3D equipment from my very own fundraiser.
Like you, I want the latest cancer detection technology available for all women.3D tests can mean the difference between an early or late diagnosis.
Making a donation is my way of saying ‘thanks a million’ to my doctors and nurses who were my rock during treatment. It’s people like you who keep me going. Thank you!
