Peoplecare Savvy Survivor X - July 2011
This season Savvy teamed up with Dry July to raise funds for Wollongong Hospitals services for Cancer Care patients. We also used the funds raised from registrations to help one of our members who has been diagnosed with cancer and will need funds for the management of this.
This very special person trained with Savvy since 2007 and only stopped when she was diagnosed with breast cancer. Since recovering from breast cancer she returned to training. Only a few weeks ago due to feeling pain in her back was she now been told she has incurable bone cancer.
They also found it had moved to her brain but they were able to successfully operate on this area. This wonderful lady has a wonderful husband who he himself has survived cancer and they have two very young children. This lady is a vibrant positive person who has amazing strength of character and plans to take this on and live life to the fullest. The funds can assist with the drug required to help stop the cancer from spreading and at least take a small amount of financial stress out of the equation.
We have not told this family that we plan to give them these funds as yet but plan to present it at the end of the week and share this special moment with you all. Together we have the power to at least help in some small way and for any of our members who are faced with hardship you can trust that Savvy will be there to support you in any way possible!
Total funds raised was $21,844.00
CONGRATULATIONS TO 1st place - The Aston Lee Blue Tribe! The Yellows led for a good part of the week but it was the Blues that were unstoppable and eventually unbeatable this season. The Blues were definitely athletic and high performers taking out the most amount of 1st places. The Blue tribe now have 4 wins under their belt and are planning to take on a 5th for summer.
