He fundraising as part of Dry July was in honour of her late grandmother who passed away from secondary breast cancer.
“I was always really close with my Nan growing up, so it hit me really hard when she was diagnosed with secondary Breast Cancer.
“She eventually passed away from the disease and asked for funds collected at her funeral to be donated to the McGrath Foundation, where she received help, support and care.”
Georgia was only 18 years old when she lost her grandmother, and said, “I’ll always remember how strong she was with everything she had to go through.
“She absolutely loved us grandkids and would’ve done anything for us.
]“She was always so proud of everything we had achieved. I wish I could have one last cuppa with her, a chat and a big hug. In a way, I feel like I was honouring my Nan by doing Dry July this year for McGrath Foundation.”
“I’d really encourage anyone thinking of taking part in Dry July to give it a go – you never know what you might achieve, and you’ll be supporting a good cause.”
Dry July has awarded $1 million to McGrath Foundation for the McGrath Breast Care Nurse program.
This year’s Dry July donations topped $10 millionwith over 38,000 Aussies going dry to raise funds for those affected by cancer. The McGrath Foundation was one 33 beneficiaries who provide services and support to those who have been affected by cancer.
