For Marketing Manager Mark Richardson, Red Energy’s support of BCNA is much more than a business strategy. He knows only too well the devastating impact breast cancer can have on a family.
‘I’m proud to be part of a very large Spanish family, which has an extraordinary proportion of headstrong, beautiful women – I have seven aunts and 26 female cousins,’ Mark says.
‘Out of those many women, I’ve had both a cousin and an aunt diagnosed with breast cancer in recent years.’
After supporting BCNA’s Pink Lady Match, Mark and the team at Red Energy are proud to be making the 2018 Field of Women possible.
‘Field of Women is a celebration of survivorship and an opportunity to show our support for the people who are currently undergoing treatment or living with breast cancer,’ says Mark.
‘But also, it’s a special time for us to take a moment and remember those who are no longer with us.’
For Mark, the event will be deeply personal, as he remembers and pays tribute to the many people affected by breast cancer in his family.
‘I’m going to stand on the ’G as a tribute to the breast cancer survivors in my family, and in memory of the three women my family has lost to breast cancer – my cousin, my aunt and my mum.’
‘To stand side by side with breast cancer survivors and their supporters will be very special.’
