Louise Bilston:In August 2001, at 8 months pregnant wand with high and erratic blood pressure, Louise Bilston was admitted to John James hospital to be cared for while waiting the birth of her fourth child. Only days from having a planned delivery, Louise suffered a central abruption and lost her baby, a little girl Lucy Anne. From her bed in intensive care, Louise and her husband then planned a funeral for Lucy at the same time they organised a birthday part for their 6 year old Grace. At that point it really hit home to Louise that when you go through a tragedy, illness or injury, life keeps going on around you. It was through the support of her family and friends that Louise got through this very difficult time. Over the next few years, Louise (and her husband) suffered bouts of depression. Subsequently they also lost their marriage. Faced with being a single mum of three teenagers, all who participated in school and representative sports and events, threw herself into supporting her kids in their endeavours and the schools and blubs who supported and facilitated these. Louise found support and friendship and a sense of achievement being involved in local community and school groups and events. Louise has been on many committees, fundraised, coached and managed teams for the school P&Fs. School Fetes, St Francis of Assisi Parish, Calwell Little Athletics, Tuggeranong Cricket Club, Maddies Netball Club, Tuggeranong Netball Association, Queanbeyan Netball Association, ACT Cricket and ACT Netball. Louise has been recognised numerous times for her volunteer work including ACT Cricket Administrator of the year (twice), Maddies Netball Club Coach of the year and Member of the year, ACT Sports and Recreation Outstanding Excellence in Volunteering Thanks award. Louise works full time as the business Manager of Point Project Management and currently volunteers in the community in the following capacity: President and a Coach for Tuggeranong Netball Association; player, coach and a coaching co-ordinator for Maddies Netball Club and on the Exec organising committee of Lifecycle. The reason for my nomination it to recognise Louise's ongoing contribution to community, school and sports groups but to also highlight two amazing and unique community events that Louise has been art of starting, drives and inspires others to participate and support: Tuggeranong Netball Association Annual Marathon Netball game to raise awareness of and funds for other Bosom Buddies and Lifeline; and Lifecycle to raise awareness of Leukaemia and funds to build a purpose built respite support facility in the ACT for patients being treated for Leukaemia. Louise challenged the TNA community to run this game on their centre court while they ran their normal competition on the courts all around….as, she knows first hand, life goes on around you while you arte face with the challenged of illness and tragedies, and it just takes just a little effort from the surrounding community to really make a difference.
