Bridge to Brisbane Event 2016
Louise Halliday and her friends are supporting Higher Thinking by participating in the Bridge to Brisbane Day on Sunday 28 August. She says "there are some scary statistics when it comes to brain cancer which can make for uncomfortable reading! I don't want to dwell on these, rather, I like to focus on the many positives of my experience and my prognosis. I have been treated by exceptional medical professionals, in excellent facilities with state of the art treatment options available, some of which are available in Hervey Bay! All of those that I have met in the medical profession are doing everything in their power to further improve outcomes for people like me. As a result, I want to give back by raising much needed funds, particularly for those involved in research.
Fortunately for me, my tumour is considered a 'good' one and my long term prognosis excellent, which is indeed a lot better than most others who have brain tumours. Even whilst undergoing chemotherapy treatment, I am well enough to participate in The Sunday Mail Suncorp Bank Bridge to Brisbane 2016 (although this year I'll be walking, not running!!). I've also enlisted the support of some of my besties who will be walking with me. Thank you in advance for your generosity, it means a lot!"
We wish Louise and her team the very best, and thank them for their initiative!
