Jodie Hart

Another original “Calendar Girl”. Jodie was so impressed by the drive and passion of the original Brave Hearts, she “signed on” with an important input into the calendar, and then became an invaluable part of the crew to help build our first dragon boat.

A talented word-smith with wonderful empathy, Jodie has been able to instil hope and positivity to others travelling on a cancer journey and her memorable “Sink or Swim” and “Brave” articles are still lovingly rekindled to inspire new survivors. These writing talents are being utilised again as she is currently involved in helping survivors tell their stories through our current inspirational book project. Jodie has been strongly involved in the dragon boat club and served as Treasurer for several years. As the Dragon Boat Regatta Coordinator for two years, her great legacy was to create a professional management plan for successive coordinators to follow.

On many occasions, Jodie has created public awareness of the Brave Hearts’ cause through the media and public speaking and has always been a caring and supportive person to all members of the Brave Hearts community. We have always been in awe of how she juggles her time between being a wonderful wife, mother, nurse and very willing active advocate for Brave Hearts.

Jodie is currently now one of our community’s respected McGrath Breast Care Nurses. Her expertise in nursing accompanied by her own experiences as a cancer survivor makes her the perfect candidate for her position. Jodie’s valued continual support for Brave Hearts together with her caring and supporting nature makes her an invaluable member of our organisation.
