“I will be forever grateful to Cancer Council for their help in my time of need, it was a huge help to get me through those few months of a terminal illness diagnosis.
I did feel a bit embarrassed that I needed this help but then remembered I sponsored Cancer Council for a couple of years as a young adult. I was happy to know that my money was going towards helping people like myself, dealing with this disease, at a time when it was most needed.”
- Loretta, diagnosed with breast cancer in 2015 and metastatic breast cancer in 2018
