Host Hero Continues her Fight to #forkcancer

We are so grateful for people like Julia Strawbridge who will be hosting her fourth Longest Table, getting bigger each year!

Being a nurse, Julia has seen first-hand the heartbreak and trauma cancer sufferers and their families go through and she is determined to #forkcancer with her friends.

Having lost both her mother-in-law and father-in-law to cancer, Julia knows all too well how cancer destroys the lives of so many who suffer from this heartbreaking disease and also their families.

“Cancer effects anyone and everyone and losing loved ones to cancer makes me want to support cancer research so this horrible disease can stop taking the lives of people we love,” Julia said.

Cooking up a storm this year, Julia’s theme is Christmas in July with a Tim Burton twist on a Nightmare before Christmas. The menu will include roast meat and veggies which she will be sharing with around 40 friends.

Julia is planning a raffle and silent auction on the night to help her raise her goal fundraising amount.

Being too close to the disease, Julia would love nothing more to see an end to this heartbreaking disease, so hopefully one day her grandchildren can live in a world where cancer doesn’t exist.

Thank you Julia, with your ongoing support through your fundraising, a cure might be at the end of your table!
