Story

I AM one of the lucky ones. 

I’m healthy. I have the love and support from incredible family and friends. I am cancer free.
And I am forever grateful and blessed for all of this. 

Over the years I have had five melanomas excised requiring reconstructive surgery and further treatment. My back looks like I’ve been through a mincer. And then there’s my abdomen and thigh. And I’m still fighting. I fight for days with sunshine on my face (with LOTS of slip, slop, slap), beautiful melodies, cuddles from the children, slobber from the dog as she drops the ball on my feet and hope for a future free from melanoma.

I’ve lost friends and family to this insidious disease in its various forms, and I know a few of you have too. 

I ask you to help me save just one of us. So I’m participating in The Melanoma March. I’ll be embracing my barefoot spirit with sand between my toes to raise awareness and funds for the Melanoma Institute. Each Melanoma March brings together melanoma patients, their families, and local communities to raise awareness and funds for research to reach their goal of zero deaths from melanoma.

And the Melanoma March is saving lives.

Australia has the highest melanoma rates in the world. Melanoma is the most common cancer affecting 20 to 39-year-old Australians and one Aussie is diagnosed with the disease every 30 minutes. It is estimated 1300 Australians will die from melanoma this year.

My mini Maya is going to hold my hand and walk with me. She brushes my hair when I recovering from surgery. She fluffs my pillows and brews pots of tea. On 27 March she will walk by my side for an Australia free from melanoma.

Please give if you can.

I would also really appreciate it if you could share my page or comment so more people know about it.
