Today is a good day!

Thursday 16th Sep

Just over halfway through the Sun Up Challenge. And yesterday we had some good news about Holly’s treatment…


Complete metabolic response! In other words…YAY!!! Holly does NOT need radiation added to her chemo! The treatment is working!!! So full steam ahead to cycle 3. Then only three more cycles to go. She will (we hope, and obvs will be because she’s a superhero) be done by the end of the year! 


But it isn’t always easy. Since we started this journey just 10 and a half weeks ago, it has been a rollercoaster. In fact today is EXACTLY 10 weeks since we found out that Holly has cancer. I will never forget that moment. We walked down the hall of C2 West at Sydney’s Children’s Hospital Randwick, flanked by her oncology team and we were ushered into a room. And that’s when our marathon started.


And we are only 10 weeks into it. It will be FIVE YEARS before there is an official, 100% woohoo! FIVE. YEARS. Holly will be 21!


So yes, we are doing ridiculous happy dances that Holly’s treatment is working. Apart from the incredible science and research and the brilliance of her team of doctors and nurses who have worked tirelessly to get her to this point, it’s also a bit of good old-fashioned luck that Holly’s body is responding this way.


But every body is different and everyone’s cancer experience is different. Raising money for Red Kite means more to me than just hoping they can give us support as we navigate this rocky terrain. It means that in the future, when other children and their families are led into that room , they know that there is back up - practical, emotional, financial - and that they are not, nor never will be alone.


Please donate if you can. Today, Thursday 16 September, BOC will match all donations made. So this means your donation will have DOUBLE IMPACT. I’m going to do 8km today to double my efforts in solidarity.


Love to you all.

Morning walks for Holly

Saturday 7th Aug

When we found out that Holly has stage 4 Hodgkin’s lymphoma, it felt surreal. I still don’t quite believe it is actually happening, even though she is about to finish her first round of chemo –she still has approximately 22 weeks of treatment left. I know it’s going to get harder and harder. But she is an amazingly strong and resilient little potato. She’s absolutely got this!

One of the wonderful charities that has got our back and is providing much needed support to Holly and many more families facing this challenging time is Redkite.

I’m not a fit person. I really don’t like exercising. And the thought of wearing anything approximating activewear makes me feel desperately uncomfortable. But that is absolutely NOTHING compared to what Holly is going through.

So… Every morning in September, I will be attempting a 4km walk! I am aiming to walk 120km in September!!!

How can you motivate me to get into that lycra and get walking? Support me by making a tax-deductible donation to my Redkite Sun Up Challenge. Boom! Your generosity will make sure Redkite can provide even more families facing childhood cancer practical and emotional support and care.

Thanks for your generosity and support!
