Behind the scenes at ACRF: Meet Renee

With the need for connection being more important than ever before, we’re pleased to share with you some behind-the-scenes action from the ACRF team. We’re a small but dedicated group committed, as we know you are, to helping to create a world without cancer. Meet Renee McCarthy – our Regular Giving Coordinator.

“At ACRF I’m part of the Direct Giving team looking after our amazing Luminaries, our regular givers. I love being able to connect with ACRF supporters over the phone and in-person at lab tours (if you’ve not been on one please get in touch!). Everyone has a connection to cancer in some way and being able to connect with supporters and share stories, I’m inspired every day by their generosity.

I’ve really enjoyed being part of the ACRF team for the past two years. There have been so many great opportunities like travelling to research facilities, getting to meet and hear from world class cancer researchers on the latest cancer research outcomes, meeting and hearing incredible stories of strength and generosity from our supporters.

Outside of ACRF I love pottering around in my garden and spending time at the beach and trying out new recipes in the kitchen. Growing up on the Central Coast I’ve always spent a lot of time at the beach and try to visit as often as I can. I absolutely love to travel and almost always have a trip planned on the horizon. There’s nothing more exciting to me than having a trip to look forward to, getting to experience an entirely new place and cuisine, it’s always such an adventure. My most recent trip was to India at the start of the year where I spent two weeks travelling, eating, drinking chai and attending a wedding.”
