I’m doing it for cancer!
When I was 15 my life changed, I lost my Mum to cancer.
Mum had a beautiful smile and was always happy and that's how I will always remember her thanks to her support network (my Aunty Ann, her home care nurse, Mum's closest friends & my big sister) and I can never thank them enough for allowing me to remember Mum as the happy woman she was.
My younger sister & I never really understood what was happening because Mum's support network would do what they had to, to keep everything as normal as possible. They would care for her while we were at school, always help her get dressed & give her the pain relief she needed so when we walked in the door each afternoon she was happy & able to spend time with us, talking & laughing like nothing was wrong.
It's been 27 years since she left us & not a day goes by that I wish she could still be here.
Since my Mum, there has been so many people in my life who are no longer here because of cancer and more going through cancer treatment now & I wish this wasn't true.
17 years ago I got dread locks whilst travelling in England. I thought it was just a faze but they have ended up being a large part of who I am today. Because 1 in 2 Australians will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime, I’m losing my dreads to raise funds & support the Cancer Council in their mission for a cancer free future
