Anna's Walk

Anna's Walk

Anna, my beautiful wife lost her battle with bladder cancer in September 2017. It just wasn’t fair. She left behind a devoted husband, two young children Noah, 13 and Manon, 11; and wonderful family and friends. It has turned our world upside down and changed it forever.

Anna was such an inspiration to everyone that knew her, and had an amazing aura about her. A serene calmness, and an attitude of slowing down and just ‘being’ and not always ‘doing’. Very difficult to do in the fast-paced world we all live in. But it rubbed off on all that knew her – this was her legacy

This walk is in memory of Anna, and we are hoping that “Anna’s Walk” will be an annual event. It will celebrate her love of the outdoors, bush-walking and the beach.

Anna's Story

Anna.JPG

Anna, my beautiful wife, lost her battle with bladder cancer in September 2017. It just wasn’t fair; how could someone so healthy, calm, and living in the moment be diagnosed with this awful thing? She left behind a devoted husband, two young children Noah, now 14 and Manon, 12; and wonderful family and friends. It has turned our world upside down and changed it forever.

Anna was such an inspiration to everyone that knew her, and had an amazing aura about her. A serene calmness, and an attitude of slowing down and just ‘being’ and not always ‘doing’. She reminded people to see the beauty in every day. Very difficult to do in the fast-paced world we all live in.  But it rubbed off on all that knew her – this was her legacy.

This walk is in memory of Anna

This is our second “Anna’s Walk”. It will give us the opportunity to stop, and remind ourselves of her grace, beauty, positivity and determination, and will celebrate her love of the outdoors, bushwalking and the beach. Our first walk last year was a huge success and a wonderful occasion, and we want to make this year equally as special.

  • Remember our beautiful Anna

  • Raise money to fund BEAT Bladder Cancer Australia

  • Help raise community awareness of bladder cancer

  • Take time out of our busy lives to simply appreciate the beauty all around us.

There will be the opportunity to relax after the walk at Mona Vale surf club where there will be a free BBQ and pay bar. You can stretch your legs, chat about your day and watch the sun set.

How Can we Help?

But how can we help stop this tragic story happening to other families? During her sickness, and in the hope that she would get better, Anna became passionate about creating a greater awareness of bladder cancer. Bladder cancer can be effectively treated if it is found early.

Anna was the inspiration for the creation of BEAT Bladder Cancer Australia. A passionate patient-driven team with a broad range of health experience, expertise in bladder cancer, NFP/charity and business experience. We are a fully registered Australian charity.

Our mission is to increase community education and awareness; provide support services to patients & carers; and to help steer treatment and research options. Our next project is to commence an Australian-wide community bladder cancer education and awareness program with the key message of "Blood in your pee? See your GP.”

All donations received from Anna's Walk will go directly to this community project.
