I love cycling in hilly Dunedin and, because of my restricted leg movements (I only have a 70degree bend in my knee), I ride a slightly modified e-bike.

I’m Jen and I had osteocacoma (bone cancer) in my right tibia. I was really lucky to keep my leg and have just passed the 20 year check-up mark- yah!

I love cycling in hilly Dunedin and because of my restricted leg movements (I only have a 70 degree bend in my knee) I ride a slightly modified e-bike made by bike enthusiast Steve Ward in North East Valley.

My favourite route is up and over Mt Cargill road and to town with my toddler in tow. I’m so glad chemo didn’t kill my egg cells!

30 Stories for 30 Years

In 2020 the Cancer Society celebrated the 30th anniversary of Daffodil Day.

It also marked a 30 year relationship with ANZ as the Principal Sponsor of Daffodil Day. We want to thank the team at ANZ for their amazing support.

To acknowledge this we found 30+ people to tell their story. These stories talk about the generosity of everyday New Zealanders making a difference for people with cancer. They talk about the effect of cancer on people and on whānau, they talk about hope, and they talk about the work we do here at the Cancer Society.
