Leona & Candice Pink Pedal Challenge

LeonaCandiceFrom the moment I heard about the opportunity to cycle through Vietnam and Cambodia, whilst fundraising for Breast Cancer Network Australia, I was ‘in’. What an awesome adventure this would be. Little did I know when I signed up, that the universe had other plans for me. I have been battling this cancer beast for two and a half years now, trying to live as ‘normal’ a life as possible, working, travelling, exercising … living! With training for my big adventure well under way and feeling on top of the world, the cancer beast, more aggressive than ever, has struck a debilitating blow. I am ‘shattered’ that I am forced to withdraw from the adventure in Vietnam and Cambodia.

But I refuse to go down without a fight. I set out to raise $10,000 for Breast Cancer Network Australia and that is exactly what I intend to do … with a little help from my dear friend Candice Butler, who has offered to cycle in my place. My quest to raise vital funds for Breast Cancer Network Australia continues. With your support, we can continue to ensure Australians affected by breast cancer receive the very best support, information, treatment and care.
