It is an alarming fact that one in two Australians will be diagnosed with cancer before the age of 85. This means that this potentially deadly disease is likely to touch every one of us at some point in our lives.

The RRT recently attended the Ride to Conquer Cancer. The ride, on 11th October 2014 was from the Sydney Olympic Park to the Hawkesbury River at Windsor. The 2-day event, involved a 100km ride each day. This ride wasn’t just for athletes, but for anyone who wanted to challenge themselves for the cause.

    As one who was given 9 months to live, without Cancer treatment, I say thank God for the Doctors & Nurses who give such unselfish treatment and thanks to the PBCC and all who support them.

      It’s good weather, but that sun does contribute to some types of cancer that are prevalent here!
