Bloody Cells Ball
Cancer is one of the biggest challenges that anyone and their family can experience, it does not discriminate in its devastation. Blood cancer touches the lives of many Australians, in fact the equivalent of 50 people per day, or one person every 28 minutes is newly diagnosed with a form of blood cancer, and it was on one unassuming day in 2009 that the Fallances’ were presented with this incredible challenge.
In 2009, Pauline Fallance was diagnosed with acute myeloid leukemia, and from what started with a seemingly innocent blister on her finger, led to a hospital admission and treatment starting within 48 hours of diagnosis. For Pauline’s treatment of acute myeloid leukemia involved progressive rounds of intense chemotherapy, breaking down the body’s immune system to disturbing effect in an attempt to kill the cancer. The impact that this process has on someone can only be truly understood by those who have to endure it, mostly in isolation, and those who support them.
It is these supporters, both in her first, and subsequent successful battles with cancer, that drive the Fallances’ to give back. Inspired by those who dedicate their lives to giving strength and care to those who need it most.
We look forward to welcoming you to the inaugural 2022 Bloody Cells Ball which will be an incredible night not to be missed!
