My Message

On the evening of Saturday 16 October, I am taking part in Light the Night because blood cancer has touched my life. I was first diagnosed with a type of blood cancer called Hodgkin’s lymphoma in 2019. I then endured 5 cycles of chemotherapy before reaching remission and finishing my treatment in April 2020. I was then in remission for 6 months during which I participated in my first Light the Night where I raised over $3000. My goal is to raise at least another $3000 this year for the Leukaemia Foundation. My cancer then relapsed at the end of October 2020. Since then I have had two lines of chemotherapy fail, a bone marrow transplant with many complications including graft failure and I am still not cancer free. My oncologist has said that my Hodgkin’s lymphoma is resistant to chemotherapy. I have now started radiation to hopefully get me to remission, since we have been avoiding it for so long I am hoping that this is like the missing key. The funds raised through this special event provide families like mine who are facing blood cancer with the care needed to make it through the scary and uncertain moments that follow a diagnosis. Donations transform fear into hope in miraculous, life-changing ways by furthering the work of brilliant research. This research is saving lives right now as it continues to discover faster diagnoses and even better treatments for people with blood cancer. This research may help to find a cure for me and many others facing chemotherapy resistant blood cancers. Please help me reach my goal and sponsor me to Light the Night.

Megan, I came across your blog and was moved by your story. I was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin lymphoma this year and participated in my first Light the Night this year. Thinking of you and hope the good days outweigh those inevitable bad days that come with cancer. You’re so strong!
