Ross Clennett

This Mother’s Day, I’m fundraising for breast cancer research…

As I have for the past ten years, I request your support in my goal to raise $15,000. Each year the MDC makes a multi-million dollar donation to the National Breast Cancer Foundation to assist with the funding of research projects that are consistent with the NBCF’s goal of zero breast cancer deaths by 2030.

My passion for breast cancer fundraising came from the death of my sister, Mary, who passed away on 18 January 2012 in a London hospital, aged 44 years and one month.


Mary’s death left her husband and life partner of 20 years, Sam, to raise their 5-year-old son, Ned, and 4 year old daughter, Lola, in their Hertfordshire home just outside Cambridge.

Ned has just turned 16 years old and Lola is 14 years old. Ned is a fanatical rugby player and Lola excels at cross country and hockey.

Fortunately, Sam, Ned and Lola’s most recent visit to Australia occurred across Christmas 2019 and into January 2020, just before the COVID-19 lockdowns.

Thank you for any donation you would care to make to support my fundraising for the National Breast Cancer Foundation.

Thank you to my Sponsors
