Move It

My Activity Tracking

155
kms

My target 150 kms

I'm Moving It this September!

This September, I'm walking & cycling 6̸3̸km; no actually 150km for the 63 Australians who die from pancreatic cancer each week. 

Pancreatic cancer is now the 3rd biggest cancer killer of Australians, and because early-stage pancreatic cancer rarely causes symptoms, the survival rates are devastating.

If you are diagnosed with pancreatic cancer tomorrow, there is only an 11.5% chance you'll be alive in 5 years.

But research can change this. Your support will fund life-saving pancreatic cancer research and improve survival rates.

So this September, I'm challenging myself to get up, get moving and walk/cycle 150km.

Please make a donation to support my challenge and help fund life-changing pancreatic cancer research.

Say no more…

Tuesday 13th Sep
My shirt has arrived 🙌🏼 I’m doing this because I want to see a world without PC! I don’t want other families to go through what my family has! The loss of someone so special is the worst experience EVER!!

3 mths without you 💔

Tuesday 6th Sep
The 6th September means 3 long months without you doing life with us 💔 without you laughing with us, making memories with us, loving us! As time goes on is meant to get easier isn’t it? Not true…not true at all; our lives, our hearts, our family is so empty without you!!! Everyday spent without you my heart aches a little more, I miss you; a little too much, a little too often and a little bit more everyday 💔

Father’s Day 💔

Sunday 4th Sep
I sit here with a broken heart having a cry as our family of 3 experience yet another day of firsts…the first Fathers Day where the person we are meant to be showering with hugs, love & gifts is no longer here. Curtis was an amazing, loving, supportive, proud dad. Always backing his boys and showing them how to be beautiful men. A true gentleman and beautiful soul! I’m thankful that our boys had/have you as their dad. We love and miss you Curtis 💔 NB. Photo is of Curtis, his dad aka GD; who is also fighting PC & our two beautiful sons Riley (15) & Kai (13).

Day 2…

Saturday 3rd Sep
How I spend my Friday night when I’ve been at work all day and haven’t met my daily KM target!! Netflix and chill...NOT…More like Netflix and X-trainer 🤷🏻‍♀️🙌🏼😂

Day 1…

Thursday 1st Sep
We’re off to a flying start!! This has been a great motivator not only to raise funds and awareness for something that has taken so much from me but it’s also motivated me to get out and care for a little someone who’s been a bit neglected since her daddy got to sick to walk her everyday. Curtis was so proud that one thing he did without fail, right up till he was unfortunately not able to, didn’t matter if it was raining or sunshine was take Ava for her daily 5km walk. Poochy is happy!!

My Inspiration!

Tuesday 30th Aug
♡ ♡ Curtis Bateman  ♡
I lost my precious husband, my children lost their amazing dad and our families lost an extremely special person to Pancreatic Cancer in June 2022! 
Curtis was and still is an inspiration in our family. He was so incredibly brave and fought so hard for 3 years even right up until the end.
To say the last 3 months has been hard is an understatement but to watch someone you love fight with everything they have to hold on to their life, their existence, their dignity is truely inspiring but gut wrenching at the same time! 
Because of my beautiful and inspirational husband and also my beautiful father-in-law going through his own challenges with PC; I am challenging myself to take a stance against Pancreatic Cancer in the hope that one day we will live in a world were this is no longer a terminal sentence!!! 

Shesh…

Tuesday 30th Aug
Well that was ambitious!! 😳🥵🙌🏼👣

Motivated!!!

Saturday 27th Aug
I am absolutely blown away by everyone’s support and generosity; thank you so much! This has given me the motivation to get started & before September has even begun! I’ve also decided to up my goal from 63 to 150km for the month! 15 was Curt’s favourite number so seems fitting…right?! 💪🏼🏃🏻‍♀️👣

Hey Del ... I've been thinking of you and your boys often. What a gem you are too raise money in support of such a terrible disease. I lost my dad to pancreatic cancer in 2011. It broke my heart to watch him battle... It was soul destroying. Much love to you and your family.
