Loss motivates pair on fundraiser trek

Last week she and mother Jenni embarked on a trek across a classic section of the Great Wall of China in the Hebei Province, while raising funds for Cure Cancer.

The pair have already raised more than $6000 for cancer research as part of their Great Wall of China challenge.

�I lost my grandpa to cancer at a young age, my grandma lost her soul mate and my mum lost her dad,� Ms Broadhead said.

�I always wanted to do something in his honour to make a difference, so others don�t have to go through the battle he did and families don�t have to grieve like ours did. Whenever things get tough I think of his smiling face and it motivates me to keep going.�

During the challenge they will camp, explore and trek between small villages, staying with host families, experiencing true local hospitality.

�Fundraisers like Jane and Jenni play an important part in supporting Australian researchers,� Cure Cancer chief executive Peter Taylor said.

�Cure Cancer invests exclusively in Australia�s brightest emerging medical researchers to combat all types of cancers. If we don�t support early-career researchers then many new ideas to improve treatments and find a cure will never be investigated.�
