Hi there,
Did you know that one Australian is diagnosed with Melanoma every 30 minutes? 

You never think this will happen to you. 

In October 2021, the unthinkable happened and I received the devastating news that I had Melanoma. A cancer diagnosis turns your world upside down. Following my diagnosis, I was faced with multiple surgeries, 12 months of immunotherapy treatment under a clinical trial, continual surveillance, and the worst part of all, an uncertain future. 

My doctor, Georgina Long, and her co-director, Richard Scolyer, have this year deservedly been awarded joint 2024 Australians of the Year for their incredible contribution to Melanoma research. Along with the amazing team at MIA, they have made huge strides in Melanoma research. 

But more needs to be done. Melanoma is the most common cancer for Australians aged 20 to 39. This disease is affecting our young people. And sadly, one Australian dies from Melanoma every 6 hours. 

I'm grateful to say that at the moment I'm enjoying a patch of good health. And thanks to the cutting edge research and treatment conducted by the MIA, I have hope. I hope that in the near future more than 50% of people will respond to treatment. I hope that, if I need it, more treatments will become available, and if you or any of your loved ones come to need it, there will be a treatment available. Ultimately I hope that in the future my kids will live in a world free from Melanoma.

On Sunday 10 March I will be marching to raise awareness for Melanoma, to support others going through this journey, to remember those we have lost, and to raise funds to help MIA continue their amazing research. 

Feel free to spread the word by sharing my page or commenting on it so more people know about it.  
Over the last 2 years I have been overwhelmed with the generosity people have shown and have raised around $45,000. I would love your continued support. Every little bit helps me reach my target of $10,000.

Click 'Donate Now' to make a secure online donation. All funds raised will go towards Melanoma Institute Australia’s life-saving research. 
Thanks so much for your support!
