As a lot of you know, my life changed dramatically last year at this exact time. After a night in hospital with what we all thought was appendicitis, turned out to be something much worse, The C bomb! (not that kind…) This all happened so quickly that within a week I was in surgery and 2 weeks later in chemo, starting what was the worst time of my life. Family, friends, my beautiful fiancé and beer was what got me through. At a time like this, drinks got all of us through, but as some of you know Sam, her brother Matt, Kirsten and my brother who struggled through it went alcohol free for the month to raise money for the amazing nurses and staff at Royal North Shore Hospital to improve the treatment for all patients that go through the cancer centre there. I saw first-hand what the fundraising in previous years had done, and now after last year’s issues it’s my turn to give back to those that helped my family and myself get through the terrible time. So please help us reach our target and beat last year’s donations. Thank you to everyone that donated last year and we hope you can do it again this year. This is also a tax-deductible donation, so you can claim it at the end of the tax year.
