10,000 Steps a Day for Blood Cancer

I’ve taken a stand against blood cancer.

This is a fund-raiser that hits close to home for me as I have a family member with MDS (myelodysplastic syndrome), September was blood cancer awareness month, but October 25 is MDS World Awareness Day. So every day in October I will aim to hit my target of 10,000 steps to raise money for research! If you aren't able to donate, please share my fund-raiser so others may be able to, remember any little bit helps! Thanks for the support!

Today, more than 50 Australians will be told that they have blood cancer and tomorrow - another 50 families will be devastated by the same news.

I have created this page to raise vital funds to help provide the special care that is needed to get families through a blood cancer diagnosis as well as to help fund more game-changing research into this disease. 

The money I raise will help provide care for those in need right now — and it will back the brightest researchers to continue uncovering faster diagnoses and better treatments to save lives. 

Please show me your support by donating to my fundraising campaign.
