To work collaboratively with individuals and other community organisations to provide appropriate services that emotionally, physically, and financially support those members in our community with a cancer diagnosis and their families to enhance their wellbeing throughout their cancer journey.


In 2004 three Albury Wodonga women, Jenny Black, Chris Thomas and Suzy Watson, came together with a dream of raising money for extra resources and support services for cancer patients in our region. Born out of this meeting was the beautiful calendar project “Brave Hearts – Faces of Courage, Love and Support”, featuring locals who had been diagnosed with cancer as the monthly stars. The overwhelming success of this calendar saw the birth of Brave Hearts on the Murray and a rewarding, continuing journey that has witnessed many projects aimed to support and provide assistance to the health and wellbeing of individuals and their families affected by a cancer diagnosis in the Albury Wodonga region.

Since that time Brave Hearts on the Murray has been involved in many projects, Including:

Establishment of a successful dragon boat club which caters for community members of all ages and especially includes those who have had a cancer diagnosis and their families and friends.  Exercise has been proven to be a beneficial part of cancer treatment and Brave Hearts Dragon Boat Club offers a supportive environment for those wanting to learn the sport that we love so much.

Set up of a new and improved wig library at the Wellness Centre in the Albury Wodonga Cancer Centre.  we now offer an extensive range of modern fashionable wigs for hire at affordable prices.

Our Celebration Garden was proudly gifted to the community in 2010, this beautiful tribute rose garden surrounds a bronze sculpture in Belvoir Park Wodonga and offers a special place of reflection to commemorate and celebrate those touched by cancer.
