Committee

Julie Jardine

Chair - Julie Jardine

“I am very proud and honoured to be the Chair of the CanDo Cancer Trust. Having a son experience Leukaemia when he was five was emotionally devastating and extremely difficult financially, adding to the enormous pressure placed on our family. I want to help make a difference for others experiencing the impact of cancer and make their lives a little easier. The Committee members of the CanDo Cancer Trust are very dedicated and it is a pleasure to work with them for this worthwhile cause.”

“I joined the Coffs Coast & Clarence CanDo Cancer Trust as I saw the opportunity to expand my community support from sporting activities to one which touches so many people. The Trust is a great source of financial support for local people and I am pleased to be able to assist in making it a great success.”

Public Officer - Jane Glover

“My interest in the CanDo Cancer Trust stems from 20 years work in Palliative Care and Oncology. A diagnosis of cancer creates instability and stress to a patient and their family. There may be job loss, need for travel or changes in lifestyle. Finances should not cause further stress and can now be supported by the Trust. I applaud all the Trust members who have come aboard with great enthusiasm to support patients and families of the North Coast Cancer Institute.”

“Cancer is an insidious disease which touches everyone, regardless of age, background and finances. It affects everyone – the individual, family and friends – making day to day living almost impossible. CanDo helps relieve some of the financial worries and I’m very honoured to be part of such a worthwhile committee.”

“We will all be touched by the effects of cancer on someone we know at some time in our lives. The CanDo Cancer Trust is a way of offering tangible support to families in our community as they face the added financial burden that prolonged illness and treatment brings. It is a privilege to have the chance to assist the committee with their fundraising efforts.”

“ I joined the committee to assist an organisation I know improves people’s lives. After a cancer diagnosis times are tough enough without people having the added burden of trying to find money they don’t have. Having seen my wife travel the journey and see the costs involved, my being on the committee is our way of paying back. It’s a great community initiative which takes a little of the stress out of these people’s lives.”
