Why did you join 'Fight on the Beaches'? As my beloved Dad, who died from oesophageal cancer in August 2010, lay in hospital during his last few days I vowed to one day do something positive to cure cancer. I am not a Doctor or a researcher, but I realised I could raise some money to help those that can find a cure.
What is your role? Co-Chairperson and Marketing Team Leader
If you could sit with anyone at the Ball, who would it be? My Dad of course, so we could enjoy a glass of red together, and my Nana who I also lost to cancer.
What prize are you most hoping to win? The French accommodation looks amazing, I would love to go there with my kids and enjoy the French culture, food (& wine country). I would also love to win a trampoline for my kids.
How can others join the fight? B UY A TICKET .... NOW! It is such a fun, uplifting night, and it is your chance to do your bit to 'fight back' against this insidious disease. Make a cash donation or a prize donation, or if you can't come as a guest you can volunteer!
