Each year Anna Roussos Recruitment + Advisory donate to various charities in memory of my daughter, Mila. In 2017, we have donated to various causes including Canteen and Lifeline, and one charity I really wanted to be able to support this year is the Jodi Lee Foundation. The JLF Trek is a wonderful way to get behind a very worthwhile cause to raise both awareness and funds for bowel cancer in Australia.
The date of 2018’s trek is very important and sentimental for myself and my family as it coincides not only with the milestone of 2 years since my bone marrow transplant (as I was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia in 2017) but also what would have been the second birthday of my daughter, Mila (who we lost due to my illness). I would love to commemorate the anniversary of both my life changing transplant, the memory of my daughter and celebrate the second chance at life I have been given and the success over the past year in both life, family and business with a number of my key clients and friends. Whilst life has hit me with some hard knocks, I feel so blessed that I continue to do what I love every day and am in a position to give back to those who aren’t as fortunate as I.
A group of close Clients will join me in spending a few days trekking through a beautiful part of South Australia to raise awareness for bowel cancer and all the fantastic work the Jodi Lee Foundation do.
