It gives me great pleasure to introduce myself as the new Chief Executive at Cancer Council SA.
I have admired the work of the organisation for many years and the real impact that it has on people throughout the community.
I’m now looking forward to continuing on with this great work and working with the staff, volunteers, supporters and wider community as we continue to take action in the fight against cancer.
I have already been impressed with the commitment and passion of the staff at Cancer Council SA and their determination to support people affected by cancer.
It is a great time to be starting in the role with Australia’s Biggest Morning Teas happening at sporting clubs, community organisations, workplaces, homes and schools throughout the State and I’m looking forward to getting along to as many of these as possible.
I’m also looking forward to meeting the many inspirational cancer survivors and wonderful volunteers who support the organisation and that I’ve heard so much about.
With Cancer Council SA involved in so much cancer-related activity, from the cutting edge research, through to prevention programs and support services, it will be a busy few weeks as I learn about everything involved with the organisation.
Rest assured, Cancer Council SA will continue its tireless work towards beating cancer and I look forward to having the opportunity to meet with you in the coming weeks and months.
Thank you for your ongoing support.
