I'm taking on the Snake Bath Challenge

I’m taking part in CEO Dare to Cure 2022 in support of Children’s Cancer Institute.

We all know someone who has been affected by cancer, now imagine hearing the words ‘your child has cancer’.

This year more than 1000 families will hear those words and you may not know, but cancer still kills more kids in Australia than any other disease. Every week nearly three Australian children and adolescents will die of cancer. 

I believe this is three too many, that’s why this year I have agreed to step out of my comfort zone and raise funds to find a cure for the brave kids who face the fear of treatment every single day. 

$5,000 will help us conduct minimal residual disease testing for two children with leukaemia so we can detect their risk of relapse.


Kids fighting cancer don't need miracles, they need medical research. 

Thanks for your support, you are making a real difference.
