Why am I doing this?

I’m hosting a Longest Table in 2022 because I want to fight cancer.


In 2022 I was lucky and unlucky enough to see first hand the important work that The Hospital Research Foundation does for South Australians living with cancer.

Unlucky because it meant someone I loved had been diagnosed.  My Mum. 

Lucky because it gave me insight into an incredibly important organisation that I otherwise knew very little about.

We were blessed with the ability to stay at a house from the Under Our Roof Foundation - a part of the Hospital Research Foundation umbrella. The house provided the comforts of home and normality to what is otherwise a period of upheaval to one's life. 

We experienced and saw first hand the incredible work those in our medical field do. And how treatment plans can pivot and change as Medical experts work together to come up with a plan. 

Without research into treatment options, medicine, support services, genetics testing, equipment and so on.. there wouldn't have been a plan A. Let alone a B or C. 

Treatment is working for my loved one. She's fighting, she's strong and she is winning. 

I know others haven't been so lucky. 

I've lost loved ones to cancer. And my loved ones have lost loved ones. 

This is for them. All of them. In the hopes that one day, there won't be a 'Them'. There will be Cures. Treatment. Prevention. 


I'm Doing it for Dee. 

I'm Doing if for Nan.

I'm Doing if for Pop.


2022 is the 10 year anniversary of The Longest Table event and we are so honoured to be able to be a small part of it. 

We will be hosting a ticketed event and raffle to assist in our fund raising goal of $5000.
