Carly Thompson - In honour for my Mum, Tracey Ann Jones

My children and I are walking in the Newcastle MDC to honour of my beautiful Mum who fought so bravely against Ovarian Cancer. Diagnosed at just 49 years old she succumbed to the illness at 53. Always the light in every room, everybody who met her was instantly drawn to her. Even when faced with a terminal illness, she continued to radiate positivity and joy everywhere she went. She even purchased herself an Audi convertible mid treatment because "if i'm going to have terminal cancer, i'm going to do in in style". So very loved and so very deeply missed every day! Thank you for opening up this years Mothers Day Classic to Ovarian Cancer Research, may we one day see an improvement in survival rates for this awful disease.

In honour of my beautiful mum, Brenda. Mothers Day 2023 was our last day together, you were so positive, determined and strong for six years. I'm sure you waited, so that I had a whole year to learn to be strong enough to face this day without you. Miss you everyday Mum xxx

Pauline Dance

Pauline is a mother of three, two daughters and a son, and lives in the regional community of Griffith, NSW. She taught primary school for 38 years and was a scout leader for 20 years. Pauline was diagnosed with stage 3C ovarian cancer with “a tumour the size of a coffee cup” at the age of 63 – her symptoms felt like a vaginal prolapse. Before her diagnosis, Pauline and her family had not heard of ovarian cancer. Like many women, Pauline believed a pap smear checked for all gynaecological cancers. Pauline has always been an active community member and is committed to raising awareness of ovarian cancer. Her mission now is to encourage women to notice potential symptoms and get checked if something doesn’t feel right. ... With immensely heavy hearts we share our resilient and inspiring wife, mum and nan, Pauline Dance passed away from ovarian cancer. Pauline calls the last few years a journey, never a fight. Her journey is now complete. We celebrate a selfless, joyous and full life, packed into a too-short timeline. We continue her legacy of generosity and education. 💜Jeff, Pauline, Andrew, Mari, Billy, Lily, Hamish, Jenny, Gary, Oscar, Patrick, Alison and Bryce. Mum wanted to do the Mother's Day classic in Canberra well before her ovarian cancer diagnosis and when the event soley fundraised for ovarian cancer. Mother's Day is my birthday and I wish we could do this in person together xx

This week we said goodbye to my 2nd mom, my Aunty Col, who lost her brave fight with breast cancer. She was an amazing person, with an incredible sense of humour and positivity even when life was handing her lemons. She was an angel on earth, always going out of her way to help others and I have no doubt I have another angel looking over me from above. Will always think of you and all the others close to me we’ve lost to the cruelest disease and those still fighting 💗😢

You died just 2 days after my birthday and the last thing you said to me before slipping away was Happy Birthday. This was typical of you as you always thought of us before anyone or anything else. You lost your own mum as a teenager so being a mum was everything to you. Not a day passes that I don't think of you and am so sad that you didn't get to see my sons marry and have their own children - you would have loved them I know! I hope that you have found rest and peace free of pain now mum. I'll never forget you. Love always Franca xoxoxoxoxoxo

For my mum Beverley who is such an inspiration 4 years on from her diagnosis, and for me who was diagnosed in December 2022 at age 32. Here's to more research so every woman survives her diagnosis and can keep being the wife/mother/sister/daughter/friend/grandma and/or aunt she wants to be!

Erinn Pages

For my mum, who is still living with the side horrible side effects of being diagnosed with inflammatory breast cancer in the middle of 2020. I love you, you didn’t deserve this, and I wish the pandemic hadn’t made it impossible to support you more. Also, to my mother-in-law, who not even two years earlier, was also diagnosed with breast cancer and is still living with the aftermath, both physically and emotionally (something that is not spoken of enough)! And to my grandmother and aunt, and also my best friend Gab… these women give so much, and we need to do everything we can to give back to them, and their health and well-being.

Caroline Drayton

Forever our Nanny Primmer


As a person who has had breast cancer I was told by a friend who had it years prior to mine to listen to the doctors and follow their advice for treatment. You are in good hands with the wonderful professionals. Be around those personally who are there for you and focus on doing what you need to do to get through this. I would often go to the waterfront and put my feet in the sand and watch the world go by. There is so much support available so don’t feel you are alone - reach out for help when needed. Love and light to all 💜

I would like lo dedicate Mothers Day Walk to Toni and Jo Francis

Jackie Masterton.

I am doing the MDC for family & friends in the hope that one day breast cancer will be a thing of the past.


Celebrating my aunt Janet, cousin Deb, friend Jo, and myself - all survivors!

For all my fellow warriors…. Keep going, keep breathing, keep fighting! & one day pink will be just another colour, not a ribbon to remember! (Lines taken from the song ‘Pink’ by Dolly Parton) Also to acknowledge my wonderful carers without whom I couldn’t have fought this battle as bravely as I did.

Mum!♡ For you always! x


Doing this for all my fellow warriors.. especially Trudi, Marcelle and Heidi who continue to smile and forge forward despite the battle blows.. Remembering Courtney Rampin, one of my first support group friends and a fellow new Mum who grew wings before her time. Thinking of her son and family today and always.. Also remembering Seema Tailor-Bulsara and Nalie Agustin- online inspirations and friends from across the globe. I never met you, but I knew you and your strength and commraderie gave me inspiration, help and hope.

I'm doing this for the most gorgeous sweetest, kindest Mum anyone could have hoped for Josephine. You fought with such strength, grace and courage until the day God took you in his arms on the 1st of Feb/2019. Life will never be the same without you here. I miss you everyday and you're locked away in my heart forever. I will make you proud. The Mother's Day Classic and being charitable meant so much to you since I started 15 years ago. Until we meet again on the other side. This walk is for you Mum. I love you forever and a day. God Bless you from your only daughter "Boo boo" as you would call me affectionately.
