“As a mum of four, I know that childhood cancer is every parent’s worst nightmare. Three children die every week from cancer here in Australia, and the only way we can change that is by supporting lifesaving cancer research.”
“I'm delighted to come on board as an ambassador for Cure Cancer and The Buddy Box. As a mum of four, I know that childhood cancer is every parent’s worst nightmare. Three children die every week from cancer here in Australia, and the only way we can change that is by supporting lifesaving cancer research.
The Buddy Box is a wonderful initiative that has a double benefit - it helps to put a smile on the faces of young cancer patients undergoing grueling treatment and all profits raised are invested directly back into pioneering cancer research by early-career researchers. I know I’m not alone in hoping that we can all one day live in a world where cancer no longer poses a threat, and by supporting initiatives like The Buddy Box, we are edging closer and closer to that reality.”
