The Live in the Now Foundation

The Live in the Now Foundation is a direct result of the experience Kerry Reinhold had with Breast Cancer after she was first diagnosed in 2012.  

Over an 18 month period Kerry underwent 3 operations, 6 months of chemotherapy, 6 weeks of daily radiotherapy, a suspected heart attack and broken arm to top it off. 

As a result of the severity of treatment, Kerry was unable to continue to work, but had adequate insurances in place that allowed her to focus on healing, and not burden her with the significant financial implications of treatment. This unfortunately is not the case for most cancer patients. During this time Kerry forged a relationship with Cheryl Baxter – Breast Care Nurse. After much discussion, they passionately believed there were 2 areas that could be improved for those affected by cancer.

  1. Programs promoting wellbeing through fun, whilst also being informative and innovative for women and men.

  2. Having little or no understanding of the medical and financial costs involved and navigating through the health and financial systems can be overwhelming.

Given Kerry’s experience (and after speaking with others who have experienced cancer) she and Cheryl felt there was a need to address these vitally important areas.

To achieve this - and this is the truly exciting bit - the not for profit organisation “Live in the Now Foundation” has been created, with all net profits being distributed back into the community.
