Lunch for Leukaemia today at UWA and meeting Leanne Preston C.E.O from Wild Child


Today my friend Mee Mee and I attended the Lunch for Leukaemia at the University of Western Australia. This lunch also included Leanne Preston speak about her business, Wild Child. We also had an insight into the Leukaemia Foundation; what they do and about the diseases. I was astounded to hear that every hour in Australia someone is diagnosed with Leukaemia or a related cancer (lymphoma and myeloma). The disease can affect anyone, at any age and often develops with little or no warning. Who are they? As stated by the Leukaemia Foundation, they are "the only national not-for-profit organisation dedicated to the care and cure of patients and families living with leukaemias, lymphomas, myeloma and related blood disorders". They receive no ongoing government funding. Its a great feeling knowing that by attending today's luncheon that I am able to contribute to raising funds for the foundation :)
I was delighted to meet Leanne personally afterwards and to have a brief chat to her. She is an inspirational women! Now I cant wait to get stuck into reading her book, "Leanne Preston and the Wild Child Story" (personally signed I might add). I look forward to next years lunch! Oh, and Mee Mee, thanks for being such great company and for taking the photo !!
