Susie Longman : Community Development Specialist, Community Engagement - Gold Coast

Susie began her journey with Cancer Council Queensland in 2020 and has already made a huge impact within the Gold Coast community.

Susie’s work predominantly involves providing support to our passionate fundraisers, working across all our campaigns and representing Cancer Council Queensland at fundraising events. She connects community members to our mission, providing information on where the money donated goes, and how it’s helping to change people’s lives.

For Susie, one of the most rewarding aspects of her work is knowing that the money she helps to raise goes towards cancer support services, and lifesaving research. This is incredibly important to her, because of the close connection she has to cancer.

I had cancer myself and knowing that the cancer that I had will be eradicated in my lifetime is so fabulous.

Susie values using her skills and talents in a positive way, to make a tangible difference to the quality of life of people with cancer. She also greatly enjoys working with her local community.

“The people who choose to fundraise for us are just lovely. Many of them have been touched either directly or indirectly by cancer, so they are very passionate about the work that we do.”
