Di Laundess

One of the original “Calendar Girls”! Di is one of God’s beautiful people and has been a Brave Heart in the true sense of the word since day one.

Di is a very gentle and compassionate person, very considerate of those around her and always sympathetic to their needs. She quietly will send an appropriate message out of the blue, when needed.

Being passionate and generous of heart, Di is a great advocate for the organisation’s cause, and drawing on that passion is always willing to create public awareness for our cause, publicly speaking on many occasions representing Brave Hearts on the Murray either for Breast Cancer awareness or representing the Brave Hearts Dragon Boat Club.

On numerous occasions Di has met survivors in person to give them support and encouragement on their cancer journey. Being an inspiring survivor herself, gives her great insight into the nurturing of a new comer’s needs. She constantly imparts positivity and strength and this dedication and contribution to supporting survivors is invaluable.

Di is the willing face behind any fundraiser – big or small – and has given outstanding support in Brave Heart on the Murray projects, especially the calendar, building the beautiful dragon boat and the rose garden project. Di also enjoys and is a very willing participant in community link projects such as Field of Women, Pink Days, Relay for Life and the Mother’s Day Classic.

Although a devoted wife to Bob, a busy Mum of four daughters, a grandmother to a gorgeous grandson and in full time employment, Di will always step up and help out whenever she can. Di in the past has always been on the dragon boat committee of which she has been Vice President and now currently serves as the Secretary of Brave Hearts on the Murray Inc. as well as being an active member of the dragon boat club.

She is, without a doubt a worthy recipient of a Silver Heart.
