Support our Biggest Morning Tea
We're doing it for Deb - who will you donate for?
On Tuesday 20th June, Beauty Reclaimed will host our own morning tea in the clinic, raising awareness for this wonderful cause and selling raffle tickets to raise money for the Cancer Council.
Our fundraiser has been inspired by the incredible Deb – one of nurse Ange’s long-time friends, who is undergoing treatment for breast cancer.
Deb is an active 50-year-old. A registered nurse, who has been working in the ICU for more than 15 years, she also volunteers at orphanages & clinics in Africa.
One morning in 2022, she woke up with a tender right breast and arm. Then she found a large lump.
Here is her story...
I had a sore, tender right arm and breast for a couple of days. On the second day, I found a large lump. I was sent for a mammogram and an ultrasound. While at the appointment, the staff called a doctor to review me, as they were very concerned about what they saw on my scans. I had a biopsy done – it showed large, 45mm triple-negative breast cancer, with metastasis lymph node.
I quickly had an appointment with a medical oncologist and surgeon. I required a further ultrasound and mammogram and had clips and seeds inserted to help kill the cancer cells. I started chemotherapy the next week and had to undergo treatment every fortnight.
Chemo was rough, very hard-going, however, I had a great result and it had shrunk the tumour. After chemo, I had surgery – they completed a lumpectomy and removed 15 lymph nodes. My margins all came back clear! 😊
I am currently undergoing daily radiation for five weeks.
Sadly, Deb’s story is not uncommon...
Cancer is a leading cause of death in Australia.
Every year, around 50,000 Aussies die from cancer.
Research & prevention is key – help us in our mission to donate funds to the Australian Cancer Council’s efforts for a cancer-free future.
We've set an ambitious - but achievable - goal of raising $1000, and would love your help in meeting this target.
And we've got one of our biggest prizes to date - over $1000 in value - including vouchers, treatments, products and more.
Our morning tea on 20th June will be more of an all-day event - so you can drop in during our opening hours, pick up a few treats, and buy some raffle tickets to be in the running to win our huge prize.
In addition to selling our raffle tickets in clinic and at our morning tea, every $10 donation made to the Biggest Morning Tea throughout June will earn an entry into our giveaway.
These entries will be counted at the end of the month, so if you make an online donation through the link below, be sure to add your name so we can add you to our raffle draw.
