I'm paddling to support Cancer Council Victoria
Why I chose to paddle across the bay.
This disease Cancer does not discriminate!
I'm surrounded by warriors, warriors who have battled and lost and warriors who is fighting this NOW.
My girlfriend Rachel is one of my dearest friend who lost her husband to this dreadful disease, she's a warrior making this paddle across the bay her mission and legacy to her late husband.
Now my girlfriend Fee is a warrior fighting this as we speak, women like Rachel and Fee inspire me everyday so i'm dedicating this paddle for them and all the warriors fighting this disease now.
Recently my husbands cousin lost his 10 year battle with this disease leaving behind he's wife and 3 year old daughter.
My Hope is that one day this thing we call cancer is washed away and we no longer have warriors to fight this.
Every year, over 31,600 Victorians hear the words ‘you have cancer’. Their lives will change in an instant, as will those of the people around them.
I'm helping Cancer Council Victoria to change this by joining Australia's largest stand up paddle event.
By supporting me, you’ll be funding ground-breaking cancer research, prevention programs and support services that offer a helping hand to all people affected by cancer.
