Olivia's message for you - Winter 2016


I am thrilled to be coming back to Australia in a few months for two very special events: The Wellness Walk & Research Run on Sunday 11th September and The ONJ Gala on Saturday 17th September.

You might have noticed the new event name: The Wellness Walk & Research Run! For the very first time, you can walk or run, through the beautiful parklands of La Trobe University in Bundoora, to raise funds for the ONJ Centre.  We are very delighted to have Australian long distance runner Steve Moneghetti leading the first ever Research Run - thank you Steve!  I will be leading the Wellness Walk for the fourth time - a day I always enjoy so much, as I love seeing so many of you coming back to support the Wellness programs each year!  I’m looking forward to walking with you at Latrobe this year!

You have 2 choices now - fun!  

You can register for The Wellness Walk & Research Run here.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart to all our wonderful friends for helping with the latest appeal featuring Tom Scrivens, a young man with a highly aggressive brain tumour.  Funds raised will help research into breakthrough therapies so we can continue to help people like Thomas.  Because of you we are one step closer to beginning vital research to develop life-changing treatments for brain, breast, lung, and colon cancer.

The dedicated team at the ONJ Centre are currently working on an exciting project for people with cancer. I can’t tell you too much about it yet but stay tuned! I can tell you a key part of this project is redeveloping our website.  We are really interested in your opinion about what you’d like to see on our new website.  We would love and appreciate your input - please email us here telling us:

1. What information you would like to see on our website
2. Would you like to see more videos on our website, and if so, what would you like to see? 

I can’t wait for you to see the new website later in the year!

I am grateful for your kindness and commitment to the ONJ Centre – it is such a special place helping thousands of people every year.  Your generosity makes such a difference to the patients and families at the ONJ Centre, all of whom join me in thanking you for all that you do.

Love & light,
