Ridma is ready for Run Melbourne, are you?
Ridma was 12 weeks pregnant when she received the devastating news that she had lymphoma. She underwent chemotherapy with a great sense of precaution.
“While all this was going on, we were constantly checking on our unborn baby. Thanks to divine intervention, our miracle boy was born. He was 10 weeks early, a ray of sunshine during a terrible stretch of misfortune and agony. We named him Dion.”?
This July, Dion will be there cheering on his mum as she takes part in Run Melbourne.
“There are so many people we know who have been touched by cancer. Cancer Council Victoria is funding vital research and challenging this deadly disease.”
