Why I Relay
I relay for my Mum, and for all the families that haven't shared our cancer success story yet.
In 2004 Mum was diagnosed with choriocarcinoma - a rare and aggressive form of cancer of the placenta. I was 5 and my brother was 3.
Luckily, this cancer was caught within the first 12 months, and, due to the research funded by organisations like the Cancer Council, was treatable.
Since 2004 my Mum has been by my side in every way. She has been my greatest support person, my confidante, my travel buddy and my shopping assistant. She is my hype woman and I couldn't imagine having grown up without her.
In May last year, two days before Mother's Day, my coworker Neddy lost her battle with cancer. I watched as her two children said goodbye to their Mum and became even more resolute in my determination to support the Cancer Council and cancer researchers in finding treatments for all cancers.
Please help me to ensure that every young mum diagnosed with cancer gets to watch her kids grow up.
