Why did you join 'Fight on the Beaches'? Last year I went to the inaugural Fight on the Beaches Cure Cancer Ball. It was an amazing and inspiring night and I thought what an incredible group of people to organise this magnificent evening to raise money to cure cancer. I decided I wanted to be a part of it.
What is your role? Administration Support
How has cancer touched your life? This is very close to my heart as my mum is currently losing her battle with cancer back in New Zealand at the age of 68.
It has broken my heart and my soul, but for everyone that loses their battle there has to be someone else that survives. For people to survive we need the wonderful researchers to be given the best chance to find the cure.
What is the most surprising thing about being on the Committee?
The committee is so driven and passionate about this cause. They have also given me so much support and friendship in such a short time
If you could sit with any 3 people on the night, who would they be? I would have done anything for my mum to be there with me and to sit with her. However I am lucky enough that my 2 oldest friends in the world are travelling from New Zealand, where I am from originally, for the night.

Dear Fight on the Beaches Supporter
With just 2 months to go until the Northern Beaches' biggest cancer fundraiser takes place, now is the time to buy your tickets, pick out your dress and clear the calendar the morning after!
We have sold more than 400 tickets already, and with the Ball set to sell out, don't delay getting your friends and family together. Click here to Buy Tickets
Please 'like' and 'share' us onFacebook, follow us on Twitteror view the donations onInstagram. COMMUNITY DONATED TICKETS
One of our goals is to give back to the local cancer affected community. We do this by donating tickets to those who have cancer, who have lost a family member to cancer, have survived it or who care for cancer sufferers. We obtain donated tickets in a number of ways:
For every corporate table sold we donate a ticket to the community in their name
When a Politician buys a ticket, an additional ticket is donated to the community in their name
When an overseas or interstate friend/family member can't make the Ball, they donate their ticket back
Straight Financial donations by Corporate's (Lend Lease have donated 10 tickets in this way)
So far we have 10 Bear Cottage staff members who will be joining us, as well as a number of local cancer sufferers and survivors, and family members of those who have been lost to cancer.
Do you know anyone that might like to volunteer their time on the night of the Ball to help us reach our $150 000 goal? We require people who are able to be on their feet for long periods, be good with making change, be outgoing and helpful from 5.30pm - midnight. All volunteers will receive a full briefing on the night, and will enjoy a dinner of delicious pizza courtesy of Fight on the Beaches.
