I know from personal experience how bad cancer can be. It tries to destroy you mentally, physically and emotionally.
I was diagnosed with cancer in June 2017, and am currently going through cycles of tests before I get my all clear. Whilst I’m on the road to recovery, many others do not get the happy ending they deserve, and cancer continues to ruin lives.
Cancer will not beat me. It has less than no hope of ever doing that. Since diagnosis I have done some pretty cool stuff, like climb the Sydney Harbour Bridge and flew an aeroplane in the actual sky! Support me as I aim to walk 10km, and at the same time get my first ever sport related medal! I consider my diagnosis and further treatment to be the start of many brilliant adventures, but always in the back of my mind I am aware I am fortunate to be able to do these things. Too many people are still not surviving cancer, so the things I do are as much for them as they are for me.
I can’t imagine what it must be like to go through this as a child. Therefore I am committed to raising as much as I can to ensure less children have to experience cancer, and get to enjoy there childhoods like all children should.
