Relay For Life Volunteer

I’m determined to make a difference.

After losing his mum to cancer, Cale found volunteering for CCQ to be an important part of the healing process. Attending his first Relay For Life in 2009 served as the catalyst for his volunteering career, and since then he has seized every opportunity that has come his way.

I’m fighting back against cancer

Having fought off the bowel cancer she was diagnosed with at 21, Stephanie’s eyes are on a cancer-free future. As a volunteer she has been involved in the Biggest Morning Tea, Daffodil Day and Pink Ribbon Day, but her favourite event remains Relay for Life.

Cancer Connect Volunteer

To make someone’s journey
the best it can be

Mena shares the knowledge of her personal cancer journey and how to access the support offered by CCQ with others, offering a shoulder and a listening ear to those who need it. She volunteers with the hope of having a world free of cancer, but in the meantime is satisfied knowing she can help others.

Relay For Life Volunteer

The gift of giving is very rewarding

Bruce’s passion for volunteering stems from the loss of his brother to sinus cancer in 1994. His brother was greatly helped by CCQ and said he would spend the rest of his life volunteering, a sentiment that inspired Bruce to take up the campaign in his name.

To gain a different perspective on life

When Theresa applied for a volunteer role as something to do during university break, she wasn’t expecting to receive the career boost she has over the past two years.
