“My name is Celine and my husband’s name is Khoi and we recently got married. We had a beautiful ceremony at Mosman’s Sacred Heart Church, followed by the perfect waterfront reception on Middle Harbour – it was a wonderful day.
I first met Khoi when I was on my university placement, training to become a sonographer. We struck up a friendship which continued on well past my placement. We had been together for about seven years when Khoi proposed. It was on April Fool’s day – if you knew him you would understand that he would choose that day of all days! It was a huge surprise to me and I didn’t believe him.

When it came time to plan our wedding we went to a wedding expo and came across a booth set up by ACRF. I had never thought about asking for cancer research donations at our wedding. But after talking with the ACRF staff and learning about how donations help fund cancer research equipment, we felt it was important for us to contribute and it just made sense to make it part of our special day.
With both of us working in the medical imaging field, we meet many people with cancer. Sadly, cancer has also affected my own family. Not only have both of my grandmothers and one grandfather died from cancer, my remaining grandfather has recently overcome prostate cancer.
Our family and friends thought it was a great idea that we were supporting cancer research with donations to ACRF.
In the midst of wedding planning, it’s so easy to spend money on trivial things and lose sight of what is really important, but a contribution to research or charity will go such a long way.” – ACRF supporter, Celine
