Editorial: Fundraising could lead to breakthrough

AFTER the death of a loved one, it's only natural to take a look at your own life.

Are you happy?

Are you in a job that you enjoy?

Are there things you want to change?

Are you living your life to the fullest?

For some people, it's the kick in the pants they need to take stock of their life and make some changes for the better.

I take my hat off to Jude Edwards who is tackling the Cane2Coral run in August, despite never being a runner.

She is taking on the challenge in honour of her husband, Peter, who died of a brain tumour.

In the process, she is also raising money for the Cure for Brain Cancer Foundation.

It's her way of paying it forward.

There are a lot of ways that you can honour someone's memory.

Mrs Edwards not only lets her connect with her late husband through undertaking an activity he enjoyed, but is a proactive fundraiser which one day might lead to a breakthrough in solving the cancer puzzle.
