"Because of cancer research, myeloma patients are doing better than ever before."
These words from my doctor, Simon Harrison, gave me hope. My life was not over. That morning I had been diagnosed with stage 3 Multiple Myeloma, a cancer of the bone marrow. My immediate thoughts were for my five young children. Their happy stable life was about to be turned upside down. I wondered if I would be around to see them graduate from school.
Eight years down the track I’ve watched all my children graduate and I remain strong and healthy.
The Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre is world renowned for its ground-breaking research into cancer prevention, detection, treatment and cure. Please join me in raising one million dollars for cancer research. I want to help improve treatment outcomes so that other recently diagnosed, frightened patients can hear those same words of hope.
Over $250,000 has been raised so far.
