Fundraising in Honour of Francesca
Just after her 30th birthday, Francesca Marino was devastated when she received the heartbreaking news that she had Stage 2 breast cancer.
After a long road of chemotherapy, radiotherapy and an operation, Francesca is now in remission and fighting fit.
“It was a long road and I am so thankful for all the love and support I received from my fiancé, my family and friends,” Francesca said.
Her loving family and friends, led by her older sisters Teresa and Antoniette, were so inspired by her positive attitude they decided to hold a fundraiser in honour of Francesca.
A Filly and Fox Fundraiser was held in October 2018 during the famous Cox Plate horse racing event. Their efforts exceeded their expectations and the group raised an incredible $10,000 towards ABCR.
“We know too many people who have been through cancer and unfortunately not all have survived. This was our way at raising money so hopefully one day we don’t face the possibility of losing our loved ones to cancer,” Teresa and Antoniette said.
