Kristie's story

"I Relay to say thanks for the support."


I was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2008. From the beginning of my cancer journey I had wonderful support from medical staff, friends and family. I Relay to say thanks.

My family and I started participating in Relay For Life to help raise money to ensure people who have to go on their own cancer journey have the same wonderful support I received. I’m also hoping some of the money raised will help find a cure.

Every year my husband, two children (Alex, eight and Tom, two), parents and close friends join me for this special event.  Not only to raise money for Cancer Council, but also to celebrate our friends and family who are survivors, and remember those who haven’t made it.

As a business owner of a company that deals with women, I hope my story raises more awareness of breast cancer among younger women and helps save more lives.
