Motivation after Cancer

Now that I have beaten Cancer I would like to walk around the bays Auckland and raise money for The Tania Dalton foundation.


My motivation to participate in round the bays started through my rehabilitation with my physiotherapist following a 4 year battle with abdominal Cancer. Through discussions with her, it became obvious that I needed a goal to motivate me to get up of a morning and start on my next journey in life.

As easy as it is for some people to be able to walk, this is a big deal for me as I have struggled with walking any distance since my last tumour was removed and the multiple surgeries I endured. Having Cancer in the abdomen means that my liver, kidneys, core muscles and lower back are severely damaged.

With the help of my daughters who take me out walking whenever they can ( I cant be trusted alone) I have so far managed to do 4km in one go and yes it hurts but I am determined to no longer be a victim to Cancer but a survivor.

I have chosen the Tania Dalton foundation because my husband knew Tania and when she died unexpectantly I suffered from survivors guilt. So this is my little way of keeping her legacy going. The Tania Dalton foundation is there to help Kiwi kids be the best they can be through sport and the TDF programmes.

After beating Cancer I would love to support the Tania Dalton foundation to enable them to carry on Tania's Legacy and help Kiwi Kids.
