Cou­ple climbs for can­cer

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - - NEWS -

IF any­one can ap­pre­ci­ate the value of price­less un­in­ter­rupted vis­tas from atop the Har­bour Bridge, it’s real es­tate agents.

Knight Frank Aus­tralia COO Justin Jef­feries is hop­ing to at­tract mo­ti­vated donors to join him on a hike up the Coathanger on Thurs­day in sup­port of the Na­tional Breast Can­cer Foun­da­tion.

For Mr Jef­feries, bridg­ing the gap be­tween fund­ing and re­search is per­sonal. His wife Cather­ine was di­ag­nosed with the ill­ness in 2005 and suf­fered through chemo­ther­apy, ra­di­a­tion and a mas­tec­tomy.

“I had no idea how to help my wife and no experience car­ing for some­one with breast can­cer so re­lied on friends and fam­ily for help,” he said.
