Thank you for visiting our fundraising page.

This year we are setting ourselves a huge challenge – we are embarking on a 5 day self-funded trek across the Great Wall of China in the hope of raising $10,000 for The Breast Cancer Foundation of New Zealand. We are proud to be supporting kiwi women by raising money for this charity. We are a mother and daughter team and have chosen this challenge as the cause is close to our hearts.

In 2013 Vivian was diagnosed with breast cancer at the same time as Candice was pregnant with her first birth child. Vivian was due to undergo surgery at the same time as Candice’s baby was due. Thankfully, little Nixon made his way into the world a week early which meant mother and daughter could spend the first week of this special time together taking care of Nixon and allowing mother to pass on her wisdom to daughter. At the time of the Great Wall Trek Vivian will be celebrating 5 years cancer free and Nixon will be celebrating his 5th birthday.

Eight women a day are diagnosed with breast cancer in New Zealand. The money we 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.

We would gratefully appreciate ANY donations. We cannot do this alone but with your support we can make a difference.

Thank you very much, Vivian and Candice.
