Our 'LOVE YOUR SISTER' Campaign aims to raise funds for Cancer research during October. Did you know that October is Australia's Breast Cancer Awareness Month?
We've decided to do our part in the challenge to conquer Cancer by raising money & awareness for The National Breast Cancer Foundation & Bec's Troops/ANZUP: Conquering Cancer, by selling Pink Ribbon inspired Leotards.
We have three leotard styles & three crop styles, each style available in White, Navy or Black. Small changes are accepted, please email prior. Or make a $50 donation to the cause.
Limited edition, while stocks last.
Your entire amount goes straight to these charities. It's the perfect way to feel great & show your support for cancer research. Almost every person is affected or knows someone who is affected by cancer, now is the time to act.
We are hoping to raise at least $1000 towards our chosen charities.
Your generous donation today will be split between..
- National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF)
- Bec's Troops/ANZUP; proudly supprting Cancer research.
See links to our charities below.
Thank-you for your support xxxx

To achieve our goal of zero deaths from breast cancer by 2030, more research is needed to understand how and why breast cancer spreads so treatments can be successful.
ANZUP is an active and collaborative cancer cooperative clinical trials group, established to bring together all the professional disciplines and groups involved in researching and treating Prostate, Bladder, Testicular and Kidney cancers.
Keeping alive the memory of a beautiful, young girl by raising money & awareness for cancer research, clinical trials, kidney cancer & youth cancer - AYA's
Bec's Troops are a team of dedicated individuals who aim to raise money for the Peter Mac, ONTrac, Youth Cancer Service and ANZUP Cancer Trials Group, by participating in many fundraising events year round- particularly the Ride to Conquer Cancer, The City2 Sea and numerous fun runs. The funds are directly donated to Peter Mac ; a hospital who see around 25,000 people with cancer, provide over 220,000 episodes of care, and care for patients requiring 43,000 day beds and ANZUP who conduct clinical trial for Kidney, Testicular, Bladder and Prostate cancer to improve patient outcomes and the Youth Cancer Service who through ONTrac looked after Bec and our family.
Each year, nearly 28,000 Victorians develop cancer and over 10,000 deaths are caused by it. Unfortunately, most people have been touched by cancer. The more money we raise to care for indiviudals with cancer the better.
Here's our story...
Bec's Troops is a team dedicated to keeping alive the wonderful memory and spirit of Bec Jago.
During October 2011 we lost our beautiful friend after a 5 year battle with kidney cancer. She was only 19.
Bec was such a tough girl who made an effort to live her life to the fullest and always with a smile on her face.
Bec received treatment from Peter Mac during her battle with cancer and also raised enough money to help open a ''break out room'' for teenagers AYA's in the hospital.
She was one girl who taught everyone to appreciate what they have, her courage and determination is something she will always be remembered for.
Our inaugural event to keep alive her memory was a 200km bike ride (something Bec probably would of tried to do when she should have been in a wheel chair) to continue our dear friend's fundraising efforts!!
And we have been fundraising and raising awareness about clinical trials and cancer research ever since.
Thanks to our very generous and committed group of family & friends for all your continuous support. We could not do this without you.
Bec is the inspiration behind our LOVE YOUR SISTER Campaign.
