Mary recently officially launched the Cancer Council Relay Motorcycle Ride to raise funds and increase awareness of cancer.

As is well known, cancer is a leading cause of death in Australia, with more than 43,000 people estimated to have died from the disease in 2010.

“An estimated 114,000 new cases of cancer were diagnosed in Australia last year, with one in two Australians expected to be diagnosed with cancer by the age of 85,” Mary said.

The Cancer Council Relay Motorcycle Ride 2012 is in its fourth year and riders hope to raise $100,000 this year.
