Cancer fundraiser visiting Warwick Showgrounds

Supplied

RODEO-GOERS on Saturday are encouraged to pay a visit at the Warwick Showgrounds to cancer survivor Vanessa Wyder, who is travelling Australia to raise $1 million for cancer research.

Vanessa Wyder is a two-time cancer survivor who has had 27 sessions of chemotherapy, 48 sessions of radiation, 1 stem cell transplant, 3 operations and almost lost her life due to the current treatment options.

She is hoping to raise money to support ten research grants for twelve months that focus on treatment that increases the immune system to fight cancer, rather than the current damaging treatments that are available. 

Vanessa is travelling around in a Jayco motorhome that has been donated, and the rest of the trip is self-funded so 100% goes to cancer research.

She is also covering the van with tribute squares, where people can write messages to be stuck on the van.

Vanessa will be in Leslie Park during Saturday's craft markets and Rodeo Street Parade for those who would like to chat to her and make a donation.

Visit her website at www.cruisin4acure.org.au.
