Some of you will be aware that just over a month ago, Helen was diagnosed with breast cancer.
Almost 20 years ago, Helen's mum Adrienne passed away after a ‘no holds barred’ fight with breast cancer.
Things are very different now. The medical advances made possible through money raised from events just like this mean that Helen (and too many women like her) will receive the kind of treatment and support Adrienne could not access at the time.
We are taking part in this year’s Pink Star Walk but we need your help to make a difference.
We are looking for sponsors please.
For example, $40 could fund an hour with an experienced breast nurse to support breast cancer patients in their time of need.
If we reach our target of $500, Breast Cancer Foundation NZ will be able to fund four counselling sessions for a woman recovering from or living with breast cancer, or laboratory equipment needed for vital research to improve breast cancer patient survivorship. Of course, you don’t have to sponsor $40 – any amount will be hugely appreciated and gratefully received.
Thanks very much from The Coaches United FC.
Helen, Dave, Emyr, and Oliver.
