I'm a survivor
I was diagnosed with prostate cancer in 2017. After my second biopsy, in 2018, I was told it had advanced and that treatment would need to be done. It was decided that Robotic Assisted Radical Prostatectomy was the best course of action. I was also told that I needed to lose 26 kg in order for the operation to go ahead. I had 26 weeks to do so. I lost 26 kg in 13 weeks and went on to drop a further 15 kg. Surgery was a success and I am much healthier now than I was two years ago.
My thanks to Prof. Declan Murphy and the team at Peter Mac.
Now it is time for me to do something in return.
I’m walking to help all Victorians affected by cancer
Every year over 34,000 Victorians hear the words ‘you have cancer’.
Thanks in part to generous Victorians, 7 in 10 of them will survive five years after a cancer diagnosis, but there’s still so much work to be done.
I'm helping Cancer Council Victoria by joining Walking Stars – a night-time walking half marathon in Melbourne’s CBD with a difference!
By supporting me, you’ll be funding ground-breaking cancer research, prevention programs and support services that offer a helping hand to Victorians affected by all types of cancer.
Thank you to my sponsors
