My journey with cancer
To give back to the Cancer Society for all their support for when I was going through treatment for my brain tumour.Otago
At 32 years old, I had my second brain surgery which was followed by chemotherapy and radiotherapy treatment for my brain tumour. The Cancer Society were a huge support network and I will be eternally grateful for everything they did for me, hence why I would like to do what I can, to raise funds for them.
The journey was tough, and took a huge toll on my body and mind; I was determined to not let it define who I was, and started thinking bigger than the tumour and the treatment needed to destroy it.
In August 2019, I had a MRI scan which confirmed that the tumour had gone. Now it was time to continue on with my life, and resume ticking off the bucket list. In December 2019, I competed in Taupo Ironman 70.3, closely followed by Wanaka Challenge in February 2020; to which I qualified for the World Championships in Slovenia.
The next event is Ironman Taupo in March 2021. An Ironman is widely considered one of the most difficult one-day sporting events in the world. 3.8km swim, 180km bike and a full marathon.
I would like my story to be used as a beacon of hope to those in similar situations to mine a few years ago - you will get through it, and you can achieve anything you could before treatment, and more, with the right mindset.

After going through chemotherapy and radiotherapy treatment for my brain tumour, I want to give back to the Cancer Society Otago & Southland for all their support. I also hope to inspire those going through similar circumstances as I once did.
