Petrina Burnett (1992)

Petrina Burnett 1992 runs her own private Physiotherapy Practice in Nedlands and is also a Mezzo Soprano chorus member with the WA Opera. At age 31, Petrina was diagnosed with an aggressive breast cancer. Since recovery Petrina has had a passion to make a difference to others who have or will suffer from breast or gynaecologic cancers by starting the Ladybird Foundation. She has subsequently met with world-class researchers of breast and gynaecologic cancers who can help make a life-changing impact within our community and beyond. Their vision is to ensure that the future for women diagnosed with these cancers continues to improve so that prevention, detection, and treatments are all that they can be.
