Cooking for a Cure.

I was away in Lorne when I received the call from my Sister Ang. She was in her middle 40's and had just come out of an operation for a twisted bowel, only that wasn't what it was. 

I was about to enter the Lorne Pub with my friend Von Chalmers for a nice meal.  Not to be.  When they opened Ang, it wasn't what they thought it would be.  It was Cancer! I was stunned. Unable to speak.

I sat on a nearby park bench, felt the world close in on me, and I sobbed. I mean sobbed. Angie is a rock in our family.  She is strong and beautiful.  I thought she was high on the drugs after the op but no she told me she had overheard the word Cancer from the surgeon during her operation.  She hadn’t gotten her results, but she was right.

After many hospital visits and chemo, she is now a survivor.  She was so strong and amazing, but sadly not long after her daughter was raced to hospital and had a brain tumour.  After about 9 hours they had it, but sadly no.  George returned to hospital a few years later with another.  But like her mum, she fought and she won. 

So next March 2017, I walk for them in the Relay for Life at Casey.  I will walk ‘All Night For The Fight.”   If you feel like you would like to support me and help find a cure for Cancer I would love your support.  Even the smallest of donations can help. 

I Relay because I want to make a difference in the fight against cancer. Cancer is one of the leading causes of death in Australia, and together we can change that. Cancer Council’s Relay For Life raises funds for research, prevention and support services for those affected by cancer. By joining my team or donating to me, you will be helping Cancer Council give hope to thousands of Australians.

Thank you for supporting me!
