Two Years Today

My most incredible mum, Robin, died two years ago today. At the time it was both deeply sad and a massive relief that she passed away. It was a relief because we didnt have to watch her die anymore. Mum's cancer was an awful one - not that there are nice ones - but this was a monstrosity of a beast growing physically out of her knee, and inside other parts of her body. She suffered terribly and unnecessarily. I hope nobody has to live through what we lived through. Throughout the last year of her life the Cancer Council Tasmania provided invaluable support to mum, her husband and to us, her children. I am so impressed by the adaptability of the organisation this year due to C-19! A virtual event will still help to raise much needed funds. Do it for her! x

I'm doing it for my mum, Robin (21.4.52-27.7.2018)

I'm helping to contribute to the ongoing operations of Cancer Council Tasmania's transport2treatment program, by running or walking 5km throughout the 11 - 13 of September.

Thank you for your support.
