Country Club Conference and Events Supervisor Hayley Chugg didn’t think twice about deciding who to nominate for a Federal Group $1000 Helping Hand, suggesting the Rebecca and Daniel Tavner Foundation.

Rebecca is Hayley’s co-worker; a highly valued member of the Country Club Conference and Events team. She was diagnosed with Stage 2A breast cancer last year and has since had surgery to remove the cancer, followed by chemotherapy, a double mastectomy and reconstruction, and is in the final stages of radiation treatment.

Prior to starting chemotherapy, Bec harvested her eggs, to give her and husband Daniel (who also works in C&E) the best chance of starting a family in the future, but will have to go through IVF screening to prevent passing the BRCA-1 gene on to future generations.

“It has been a really tough year and this could really help them to provide their family with a cancer-free future,” Hayley said.

The Helping Hand will contribute to IVF screening and ongoing treatment for Bec, and the entire Federal Group team wishes Bec and Daniel the very best in the future.
