A big thank you from Helen's Heroes to everyone from the RAW Track family on Friday night whose generous donations will help us along the way to achieving our goal of raising at least $12,500 for the Chris O'Brien Lifehouse at Royal Prince Alfred Hospital!

In just under seven weeks from now, Helen’s Heroes will once again take part in the 200 km Sunsuper Ride to Conquer Cancer. The Lifehouse at RPA was the vision of famous Head and Neck Surgeon Chris O'Brien who him self succumbed to a brain tumour in 2009. It brings together all of the incredible people who care for everyone affected by cancer, and your donation can help prevent other people and their families from having to struggle with cancer... Maybe even your own.

The number one reason we back up for this ride each year however is because of one very special person, Helen Gorrell, who ironically lost her battle with Cancer just a few days after featuring in a TEN News report on the 2012 Ride to Conquer Cancer.

Take a look at Helen's Heroes on Channel 10 in 2012: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r0A91oulNYY

It was the amazing people at the then Sydney Cancer Centre who were always our last resort whenever hope reached its lowest ebb. These were the people who constantly helped keep Helen on the list of Cancer survivors rather than on a list of Cancer victims… who gave her so many second chances when there was no chance left.

Your donations on Friday night of $100 to Noel and $134 to Ray will help out greatly, but if you happened to miss out or would like to make a further donation, there here's where you can find us:

Thanks again,
Helen's Heroes

A big thank you from us to Stephen Joyce from Div 4 who donated a whopping $100 towards our team goal of $12,500... Stephen is himself a cancer survivor, which makes him and the donation all the more amazing !
