I have run these shopping tours for the last 9 years and this will be my 11th tour as some years I have held two. The first three I raised money for Breast Cancer Australia and then for the next four I raised funds for National Breast Cancer Foundation and the last three have been for Be Uplifted Inc. I realise how much help is needed by these families going through their breast cancer journey without any monetary support out there.
I know through my own experience where I had to have 7 months off work to have operation, chemotherapy and then radiation. As soon as I was able I started organising fundraising to give back as I realised, I was one of the lucky ones to have survived.The last thing families need when they are going through their journey is financial problems and they need to have access to support groups and through Be Uplifted Inc. we give these families all the financial support that they need to get through and recover.
