FROM THE HEART... FOR THE HEART
Catriona Smith, from the Consulate General of Canada, is participating in her very first triathlon on Oct 26 - the Nepean. She is seriously stepping out of her comfort zone undertaking this event and was inspired by her late friend Allison Brennan, formerly of the Canadian Tourism Commission.  

Catriona is dedicating her participation to Allison and at the same time, raising vital funds for the Heart Centre at Westmead Childrens' Hospital. Many people may not know that last year Catriona & Jason's newborn son Monty almost lost his life at 7 days old due to cardiac failure. If it wasn't for some quick thinking, trusting their parental intuition, they were helicoptered to Sydney where Monty underwent emergency heart surgery at Westmead. 

There is a vital need for a new cardiac ultrasound machine for the Heart Centre, which comes with a price tag of over $400K. It is the key diagnostic tool for over 3500 babies and children who are treated at Westmead annually. There is only $15K left to raise and Catriona has put her hand up to get them over the line.  In just 3 days, Catriona has managed to raise $5000 and is overwhelmed by the generosity of others. 

Please visit: https://give.everydayhero.com/au/catsmith to support her cause.

FRENCH-CANADIAN FILM MASTERPIECE IN AUSTRALIA
CAFE DE FLORE - Coming to Dendy Cinemas April 25th! Healing a broken heart isn't easy. Sometimes it takes a lifetime...or two. Starring the beautiful Vanessa Paradis, Cafe de Flore  is a love story about people separated by time and place but connected in profound and mysterious ways. Atmospheric, fantastical, tragic and hopeful, the film chronicles the parallel fates of Jacqueline, a young mother with a disabled son in 1960s Paris, and Antoine, a recently-divorced, successful DJ in present day Montreal. What binds the two stories together is love - euphoric, obsessive, tragic, youthful, timeless love.

  • He had to go travel the US for surgery at a cost of around $50K
  • He was robbed while he was away and he wasn’t insured
  • He’s selling his remaining merchandise at giveaway prices to survive

A VERY important cause - Audrey's wish to help her 3 children
On March 16th, 2009, Audrey Myrden was diagnosed with a rare and very aggressive malignant brain tumour, and is very concerned about her family’s future and the financial implications of her illness. Audrey is 42 years of age and has lived in Manly NSW permanently since 1998. She runs her own environmentally friendly cleaning business and has 3 small children (all under 7). Audrey and her husband Barry are originally from Canada, so they have no immediate family here in Australia.

What makes her situation worse is that she has already fought and won a battle with Breast Cancer at the age of 27.  This second cancer is totally unrelated to the first.  Because of her previous illness, she has been unable to obtain any form of life or income protection insurance.

We have a golf tournament at the end of July and a Auction/Cocktail Party mid August. www.audreyswish.com.au

There is some urgency around gaining momentum on this as Audrey’s prognosis is very serious and her immediate future uncertain.
