$26,500 raised for Otis!

Lee is celebrating five years in remission!! 

She is driven to give back and support other women going through Breast Cancer treatment and chose to support The Otis Foundation after a memorable stay with her family.
As a previous recipient of the generosity of Otis during Lee's own cancer battle at the age of 35, she can appreciate first-hand just how invaluable the work of The Otis Foundation is. 

"My husband James, and then 1 and 3 year old daughters and I were able to enjoy a much-needed respite stay at one of Otis' retreat properties. I truly believe that this time to relax, reconnect and regroup significantly contributed to my recovery as well as providing my family with much-needed support. The Otis Foundation is recognised and recommended by oncologists all over Australia to patients to help aid the psychological impact a diagnosis has on a family."

For this, being the inaugural year of Living Your Breast Life, the goal was to raise sufficient funds for 60-80 families to receive the precious gift of time together, away from the stress of everyday life and the dread of medical obligations.
The event was a unique evening of sophisticated flair and a memorable evening with a celebratory atmosphere including fabulous food, live music, dancing, games, auctions and of course, fabulous attendees!

Thank you so much Lee, for all your hard work, generosity and kindness; the money raised will enable Otis to provide 265 nights of retreat accommodation to families just like yours.
