Lisa Conolly

Thanks to you, we're one step closer to a cancer free future!

Last year I swam for a sister-in-law, Jenny, who lost her battle with cancer, and this year I am thinking of another sister-in-law, Vanessa, who is putting up a big fight. In my circle of friends and family I know of several others who are fighting cancer, and  I am betting we all know someone in this situation because   1 in 2 Australian's will be diagnosed with cancer by the age of 85. 

So yeah, that’s a lot.  Many of these people will survive if caught early enough.  We have good public health education, population screening tests (eg for bowel and breast cancer), and good public health care - BUT  research funds are sorely needed.  

Every dollar raised will help Cancer Council SA invest in cancer research, empower people to reduce their own risk with prevention education, and provide support to   those impacted by cancer. I am especially impressed with the research being done here in SA which could have far reaching impact for Cancer patients everywhere. 

Today, you can help Cancer Council work towards a cancer free future by supporting me in the Marilyn Jetty Swim. It is sure to be a lot of fun as well.

Thank you for your support
