The word terminal has no meaning to me, I have no feelings about it, it has no power especially when I am here and living LIFE.

30th July 2020, 2 years on from a second and terminal cancer diagnosis…….

The word terminal has no meaning to me, my mind is blank when I hear it, I have no feelings about it, it has no power especially when I am here and living LIFE.

I’m blessed and grateful to be here having celebrated two more Christmas’s and 40 years around the sun when those things were not likely – I’m HERE. #thankyoujesus

The last 2 years, my life has been full of love, support and hope, I gave my heart to Jesus and everything seem to fall in place I received blessing after blessing or they found me. I gained an amazing team of integrated health specialists, I shared my story in a testimony, a documentary and several podcasts.

I was surrounded by family, friends, CrossFit, Fitness and Strongman communities, Church communities and friends. We held fundraisers, raves, events, auctions, made a speed rope and came together to raise funds that helped me to get to Australia for various alternative treatment. There was regression to the cancer and its symptoms, a major increase in overall wellbeing, quality of life and 2 more years of life still doing all of my faves with all my faves #gratefulbeyondwords.

In the current climate, life has thrown more of what I never thought I would encounter in my lifetime. A pandemic, an actual lockdown, a recession and the closure of our borders, yet in the same breath - environmental healing, humanity, and a want for Jesus not just from me but across the world more than ever, so as hard as it has been, it has not been without the good also.

With the borders closed, it means I can no longer receive alternative treatment in Australia, there is nothing offered in New Zealand.

The mainstream medication and hormone treatment I was on stopped working and there was some progression in the cancer, I had to change medication just before lockdown and started cycles of Ibrance, which is a targeted chemotherapy I take alongside hormone treatment of Fulvestrant and Zoladex and some days it has no mercy! It is slowly becoming more and more noticeable of the absence of alternative treatment in my life.

I am currently working with the Boyd Clinic & Integrated Doctors to enable getting some alternative treatment to New Zealand in September-November. The cost of the treatment is expensive and is approximately $30-$40k but life is priceless and your love and support means more than I could explain in words.

I am reaching out for your help to continue this journey along with me, I have had a few people ask me “so are you cured now?” In mainstream Doctors terms this is incurable... terminal...stage IV but I am standing and believing in God that this cancer will dissolve itself and disappear. Anything is possible in Him and I’m sticking to that journey – come with me on that path #miracle.

I am grateful for you all, always.
