My family has just lost a great friend following a long fight with cancer. She spent the prime of her life just keeping ahead of the disease. Following her career, the ability to have a family and enjoying stable relationships were made next to impossible, but she endured. During more than a decade of coming to terms with the hand that life dealt her Sally committed her thoughts to paper, earlier this year she shared some of these thoughts on youtube.
I have shared the link and hope you can find a common bond and comfort in her words. For me at least she has been an inspiration and truly encouraged me to do my best, keeping ahead of this life changing, and ultimately ending test.
Cancer Council NSW would like to acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land on which we live and work.We would also like to pay respect to elders past and present and extend that respect to all other Aboriginal people.
