Case Manager, Stacey Rau is making a difference by raising funds to support research into children’s cancer treatment.

One year ago, Stacey was diagnosed with stage 4a oral cancer. After having undergone major surgery and completing radiotherapy treatment, she is now back at work and is regaining some normality.

“I am lucky to personally have a positive prognosis, a huge support network, access to the best healthcare in the country, and an extremely supportive employer. I actually feel like one of the luckiest people in the world! I really could not ask for anything more.

“I have the overwhelming desire to give back in some way and have decided to undertake community fundraising. My charity of choice is The Kids’ Cancer Project. My reason for this is that every time I have had a procedure that is painful or scary, I can’t help but think about how children diagnosed with cancer must feel.

“There is a lack of specifically designed cancer treatments for children and therefore they are often subject to the same testing and treatments as adults,” says Stacey.

In April this year, Stacey shaved her head to raise funds for The Kids’ Cancer Project, a national charity that supports childhood cancer research and has invested more than $34 million to projects since 1993, thanks to community support.

Stacey’s fundraising goal started at $2,500 and after surpassing this amount, has raised over $3,700.
