On Sunday 22 March 2015 at 10.30am something VERY important is happening and I really want you to get involved.
The annual Melanoma March is on and it is bloody essential you get there.
You can bring your friends, family, pram, bike and dog to help raise awareness for this wonderful cause.
Here’s the scary bit, every year, more than 12,500 Aussies are diagnosed with melanoma. Basically 2 out of every 3 people are diagnosed with skin cancer in their lifetime and 1 person dies every 6 hours.
But, here is the good bit – Recent research has tripled the life expectancy of advanced melanoma patients. The cure is so very nearly in our sights!
So, what it comes down to Nesters, is that all you have to do is round up the fam-bam and mates and roll down to the river for a walk to raise awareness and funds.
Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is a disease of the central nervous system, interfering with nerve impulses within the brain, spinal chord and optic nerves. It is characterised by sclerosis a Greek word meaning scars. These scars occur within the central nervous system and depending on where they develop, manifest into various symptoms.
MS is one of the most common diseases of the central nervous system with over 23,000 people living with the disease in Australia and more than two million diagnosed worldwide. There is currently no known cure for MS. NO CURE.
