Bronwyn Wallace is hosting a high tea at sass@bowers on Kolodong Road on Sunday, November 10 for an extremely personal cause.

Sunday is World NET Cancer Day, and Bronwyn is using the event to raise funds for the Unicorn Foundation, the only Australian not for profit charity directed towards patients with a rare form of cancer - neuroendocrine tumours (NET).

In October 2018, Bronwyn and her partner Paul's lives changed forever when Bronwyn went to hospital with a superbug. A "very deligient" registrar in emergency ordered a scan which picked up, by chance, a mass in her intestine.

After numerous tests and surgeries, Brownwyn was diagnosed with NET in her terminal ileum (a part of the intestine). It had also spread to her lymph nodes.

Bronwyn has found immeasurable support from the Unicorn Foundation, and is making it her mission to help raise awareness on the cancer, and funds for the Foundation, which only has one NET nurse for Australia.

"If I can just raise one per cent awareness for NETs, then it's made a difference," she said.

The high tea will run from 2.30pm to 4.30pm. Cost is $30 which includes champagne on arrival, high tea, and a beverage of your choice. There will also be lucky door prizes.

To book call into sass@bowers or phone them on 5591 8814. Payment must be made at time of booking. Seats are limited so book fast.
