What a wonderful weekend was had by many people at the Bundaberg relay for life. It was a day I will definitely remember for a long time. I was surprised at how emotional the whole event made me- I found myself crying as I walked the survivor and carer lap with Dan. It was like a smack in the face to acknowledge that I have cancer, am currently fighting cancer and was being cheered on by a bunch of strangers. Also the candle lighting ceremony was again another very moving event.. I was proud of my walking efforts and seems all the walking paid off for preparing my lung/body for the all the walking. Thanks to Dan for encouraging me to not give up and to keep walking at my pace. It was great to raise $945 to go to a wonderful cause and to support the cancer council for all their wonderful work.!!!I know for sure I will be definitely participating in the relay for life in 2013.

My youngest son (19) and a group of his friends did the Manningham RFL earlier this year and raised over $8,000. I was so proud of them all. I did the survivor lap with my husband, eldest son and his fiancé. I have the purple survivor sash hanging up in my dressing room to remind me that, even though I am going through breast cancer for a second time, I'm still here therefore I'm still a survivor!
