A Desire to Give Back
I am one of more than 13,500 women in Australia diagnosed with Breast Cancer each year. More than 2,680 women are dying from this disease annually in Australia. And around 1 in 8 Australian women will develop Breast Cancer at some point in their lifetime.
It is a deeply personal and life-changing journey. From a position of health and gratitude for life, what has become most important to me, is that I want to give back.
Why 5 Rooms Retreat?
My husband and I established 5 Rooms Retreat with the sole intention of raising funds to donate to Breast Cancer research.
Research is the only way that will lead to understanding this potentially life threatening and invasive disease. Research can lead us towards disease prevention, early detection, diagnosis & treatment. And ultimately to higher cure rates & longer survival rates.
We want the money we’re contributing to be a small step in having Breast Cancer become a more treatable disease. And to reduce the huge disruption and devastation that it is to one’s life and family.
