Emilie and Lauren Lowe have seen far too much cancer in their lifetimes.
The sisters both work in hospitals in Orange - Emilie as a physio at Dudley Private Hospital and Lauren as a nurse at the Orange Hospital, and are stepping out of their comfort zone - with a little help - to dance their way to the Stars of Orange Dance for Cancer.
Lauren said they'd been having "the best time" preparing for the event, which is on June 1.
"We see cancer daily at work and see the impact all the trime. Personally in our family we've seen the impact so it means the world to us that we can raise some money for such a good charity," Lauren said.

The pair will also have a group of backup dancers in tow for their routine, and Emilie and Lauren said the two of them aren't the true stars of the show the 14 dancers from Central West Gymnastics are.
Their backup dancers will be throwing "legs and arms everywhere" in their routine, with the group of children staying back late from regular classes for months to help put the dance together.
"We're hoping everyone looks at them and not us," Lauren said laughing. "They throw their bodies around and it's nothing, but even learning how to do a handstand is difficult, I still can't do a cartwheel."
Emilie said their fundraiser - a Great Gatsby-style murder mystery - was a success by raising over $2000 but the whole preparation for June 1 was anything but easy.
"It's been a bit stressful and nerve-wracking because we're not familiar with gymnastics and we're not familiar with fundraising so it's been a big learning curve," she said.
Are they familiar with dancing at least?
The pair said they'd had plenty of support, and Emilie said all her co-workers and patients were behind them.
"All my patients are very interested, wanted to know what I've learned during the week, she said.
"Everyone's very interested, sitting in the lunchroom and anyone and everyone will ask how it's going, everyone's intrigued by the process."
