Raising money for the Adult Oncology Ward at Mater Hospital
“A Little Comfort”
Sitting for my First Dan Black Belt gave me the opportunity to get involved in some charity work. As a average family we try to do what we can donating to local charities, supporting St Vincents by recycling clothes, ect. but nothing that has been so close to my heart as this.
My family and I have a wonderful friend, we were absolutely devastated to be told that she had been diagnosed with Breast Cancer, for such a vibrant, beautiful and healthy woman to have been afflicted with such a terrible disease was beyond reason. This brave person went through excruciating surgery’s and many weeks of convalescing at home with only very limited family and friends for support, all the while still running a household, surgery was only the start of her long term road to recovery, she spent the next six months spending long days in the Mater Hospital receiving chemotherapy treatment.
