I've created this page because I’ve been fortunate enough to be pretty healthy my whole life and as I turn 40, I realise how fortunate I have been. I have had some close friends and family affected by breast cancer (as most people have) and I want to take this opportunity to make a difference for those that have had to suffer from this all too common disease.

Instead of receiving gifts for my birthday, I would much rather see my friends donate to a worthy cause and the work of the Breast Cancer Foundation NZ is a great cause.

Eight women a day are diagnosed with breast cancer in New Zealand. The money I raise from this page will be used to fund vital research projects and medical grants to help improve the survivorship of breast cancer in New Zealand. It will also help support kiwi women who have been diagnosed with breast cancer through services such as counselling and rehabilitation programmes.

Please consider making a donation today, anything will help. I cannot do this alone but with your support we can make a difference.
