Can you see all these amazing people in this photo? They are Rare Cancer Warriors, their Families, their Friends and the wonderful bunch of Volunteers that believe with all their hearts that they want to make a difference. A difference in the lives of those diagnosed with Rare Cancer in Australia.
This is the first annual Warriors United Conference. And the launch of the idea of “Without a Ribbon”. All Warriors that attended did so, paying for everything. Shirts were purchased to show we were part of a family. Meals were paid for, with a little extra thrown in to cover those who might not be able to afford it. The word “Family” is thrown around so regularly by groups who join together. But in our case it’s true. We have all committed to be there for each other going forward and we believe it will be true.
There is already talk about sponsors for next year’s conference. Can’t wait to see what we do.
