Team Belinda and Karen

Stars of Young 2022

Belinda is Functions and Events Manager, Marketing, Admin, “Jack of all trades” at the Young Services Club.

She is married to Wayne, and has two beautiful daughters Taylah, 17, and Caitlyn, 13.

Belinda loves good food and catching up with friends and family, going to the races and music as well as holidays near the beach, river, anywhere near the water. 

 Belinda is participating in Stars of Young because it is a great cause that helps so many.

Both Belinda's parents have been through cancer treatment and utilised some of the great Cancer Council facilities in Wagga Wagga.

 One of her best friends went through cancer treatment at a very young age plus other family members, most of whom have beaten the odds.

 It is now our time to help give back to Cancer Council! 

Karen works as an Independent Disability Support Worker, and has been in the industry for five years. She is also studying her Bachelor of Nursing part-time.

Karen is married with four young children, ranging in age from two to 10. 

She likes to spend time with her family and friends, especially on the weekends. She likes to relax reading a good book, sometimes with a vodka/lime/soda but she can't stand mushrooms.

Karen enjoys going to the gym and playing netball, although netball is definitely just for fun, not for competitiveness.

Losing a loved one to cancer has had a profound effect on Karen's life, which is why she has chosen to participate in Stars of Young. 

She lost her mother to cancer when she was only 16.  "Watching my Mum fight and lose her battle to cancer was one of the hardest things I'll ever do in my life, and the older I get, it really doesn't get an easier, especially now I have children of my own," Karen said.

"I am dancing in memory of my Mum, and to hopefully raise as much money as I can for those who have or are suffering from Cancer. "
