Dianne’s Story

The event was founded in 2014 by Dianne McGinn a nurse, wife and mother to two beautiful children. In October 2012, Dianne received the devastating diagnosis that she had an aggressive and life threatening brain tumour, gliobastoma multiforme (GBM). Despite the emotional, cognitive and physical changes experienced throughout the treatment, Dianne was determined to do something to fight back and organised her Footprints for Brain Cancer event.

The walk brings together the community, local businesses and schools, brain cancer patients and their carers to fight back and raise funds to help beat this disease.

Sadly, Dianne passed away in 2015.

Dianne will be lovingly remembered as a courageous woman and tireless champion of Cancer Council Queensland’s mission to beat cancer.

With the help of Dianne’s friends and family, Cancer Council Queensland is proud to honour her legacy, and continue Footprints for Brain Cancer.
