Meredith - Hiking Larapinta for Women's Cancer

Supporting Cherish Women's Cancer Foundation

Cherish Women's Cancer Foundation

Cherish Challenge - Larapinta 2021

Hi everyone, thank you for taking the time to come to my page and read a little about why I am undertaking this trek and raising funds for Cherish Women's Cancer Foundation. 

In 2019 I was diagnosed with Stage 1A ovarian cancer, something I knew nothing about prior to my diagnosis.  However, I have since discovered that I am one of the lucky ones, as so many women are diagnosed too late because symptoms are overlooked and gynaelogical cancers are not readily discussed.  I want to support a much needed change so many wives, partners, mothers, sisters and friends survive these cancers to be part of their loved ones lives.  I am inspired by the work Cherish do in making this a reality and the difference they have made to so many people is just extraordinary.  But they need more funding to make this happen. 

I know there are many worthwhile charities all needing your contribution and you cannot support them all.  However, if you are looking for an amazing charity to contribute to, please consider helping me to donate to one that has been such a big part of my survival story.

If you are not in a position to help financially, I completely understand but you can still help by researching a bit more about gynaelogical cancers and sharing what you have learned with the women in your life, helping to educate them on the early signs and symptoms of gynaelogical cancers.  Here is a link to get you started: https://cherish.org.au/?fbclid=IwAR3HoNT8pcG9TY3iwlvjZUf4ff_I2tPCsNvndUtZsQ2xQGC7hYHMHAEueMg

Thank you again, and wish me luck on my training for the trek.  I would be very grateful for you to share the link to this CrowdRaiser page to your friends and family. The more people who can help the better!
