Curing Cancer, One Dancer at a Time

Act Now Speak Later is an initiative founded by Jessica Bowen in 2014 (aged 15). After her mum passed away from lung cancer, Jessica felt a growing desire to create something where she could combine her love for dance to raise money and awareness for cancer. After three years of this project, Jessica has already raised over $22,000 for various charities. 
Emily - Year 12 Student
Emily G (Year 12) has been named a part of the 2018 dance team and recently performed her HSC Dance Composition work at the Sydney ‘Dear Lisa’ event where as a team they raised $3,243 to be donated to the National Breast Cancer Association. 
"Everything I do this year with the ANSL team is really special with me. The reason I auditioned for the Act Now Speak Later team in the first place was because people very close to me were being diagnosed with cancer. Some have won their battle whilst others are only just beginning"  - Emily. 
The Act Now Speak Later project inspires dancers to use their passion and talents to raise awareness and funds for different cancer foundations in order to bring help to a variety of cancer patients and their families.
