Supporting Breast Cancer Research

I'm putting my foot down to stop breast cancer in its tracks!

Wow!!! Thank you!

I am so incredibly humbled and overwhelmed with the support and donations from family and friends and friends of friends. I reached my personal fundraising goal yesterday, so  I’ve increased it as I’m determined more than ever to stop cancer in its tracks and to raise as much money for this important charity before May! Thank you to everyone who has joined the team or shown their support in the way of a donation! It is greatly appreciated and given me a spring in my step! 

Help me Crush Cancer

Hi there, I'm Crissy! I'm a 37-year-old queer woman and I’ve always dreamed of being a mother.

On October 31st last year, I was diagnosed with Triple Negative Breast Cancer, an aggressive cancer that affects many young women under 40. 

At the time of my diagnosis, my partner Aimee and I were doing IVF and I was trying to have our baby. This diagnosis turned our whole world upside down. All of a sudden, I was struggling between accepting cancer but also grieving my dream to carry a baby. 

I’ve currently done 9 chemo sessions with 7 to go, and it’s been a really challenging few months since diagnosis. 
I have a wonderful medical team and so appreciative (oncologist, doctor and nurses) of everyone at The Epworth, that are saving my life. There’s still surgery and radiation to go, but I determined to crush it. 

It goes without saying, that I’m so grateful for my incredible partner, Aimee, who has cared for and loved me through all of cancer's challenges. My family and friends have been wonderful, accompanying me to chemo sessions and providing Aimee and I with much-needed emotional support. I'm also deeply thankful for my wonderful and supportive workplace. 

So this year, I’m participating in the Mother’s Day Classic for several reasons. Firstly, as I have active breast cancer, so it feels important to support the charity and raise awareness of a disease that affects so many women. By the time of the event, I will have just finished chemo and have just completed surgery that week. Additionally, this year’s MDC event also supports ovarian cancer, and we lost one of my best friends’ mum to this disease when we were teenagers.

I also want to complete this walk on Mother’s Day this year, because I still have hope that one day I will be a mother and I’d like to start this tradition for my future and expanding family.
 I know, my path to motherhood looks difference now, since cancer, but I’m not giving up hope and I’m so determined for my future kids. 

Please join me this year in raising awareness and funds for the Breast Cancer Foundation by participating in the Mother’s Day walk and supporting me to Crush Cancers ass! 

Support my efforts in the 2024 Mother’s Day Classic!

On Sunday 12 May, I'm putting my foot down to save lives.

I'll be lacing up my running shoes and taking a step forward for women's cancer research, and I'd really love your support!

I’m joining the Mother’s Day Classic to help raise funds and awareness to fight breast and ovarian cancers.  

Tragically, 12 Australians lose their lives to these awful diseases every day. 

I’m asking you to do more than just stand with me but to support me as I walk, run, and move till we’re done. 

Please make a donation today to support my challenge. There’s only one way to stop breast and ovarian cancers - together!

Thank you for your support.
