No Stomach for Cancer
This year has been a very emotional time for me and my loved ones as recently we lost a very special friend to stomach cancer at the age of 45, who leaves behind an amazing wife and 4 beautiful children. What can I say, Chris was such an amazing person who lit up the room as he walked in, he always asked you how you were, he really genuinely wanted to know and listened. He had the most magnificent smile that just went ear to ear, it was so infectious. Chris’s passion over the last year, whilst he was fighting this disease with such strength and dignity, was to raise money for ‘No Stomach For Cancer’ who support patients and funds research world-wide for stomach cancer.
While feeling extremely lost and hopeless during this time I was able to spend some time and talk to Chris about the cause that he was so passionate about and he expressed that he would love to keep fighting the fight. It was then that I decided that I would love to continue his fight and raise ongoing awareness for this organisation. During this time, Chris researched and chose this organisation. He had reached out and spoken to Simone Busija who is a board member here in Australia for No Stomach For Cancer and hosts a national yearly walk to raise funds and awareness for this charity. Simone has set up an event and fundraising page called Team Australia No Stomach For Cancer to be held nationally on Sunday 18th November. Anyone in Australia can take part in the event.

Funds raised from the walk will be used to to fund stomach cancer research and support families who are affected by stomach cancer.
This year I have the privilege with Emma and Kylie to be the Host for the W.A. walk which will be held at Kings Park at 11am on Sunday the 18th November. We will be working together to make it a lunch time of fun, with a picnic to celebrate our walk and achievements. I am also introducing. More details to follow.
