Our Message

On the evening of Saturday 16 October, we are taking part in Light the Night in honour and loving memory of our brave and beautiful Summer. There are not enough words for me to describe how incredible my sister was. She was the kindest and happiest person I have ever known. She was the light of our family. Our golden girl. Everyone that would meet Summer would be attracted to her light. A light that would radiate leaving a lasting impression. She was my pride and joy. Being in her presence gave me so much comfort and peace. She was my world. She was wise way beyond her years and she tried her best to change the world for the better, to set an example. Even through the extreme lows of her illness, she carried herself with so much grace, poise and dignity. I am so proud to call her my sister. I miss her dearly. In early 2020 my darling sister was diagnosed with an aggressive form of Acute Myeloid Leukaemia (AML) and Acute Lymphatic Leukaemia (ALL). Our whole world was tragically turned upside down with her diagnosis. She required intensive chemotherapy and a stem cell transplant to ultimately cure her from this blood disorder. In order for a successful transplant, a sibling match was preferred, I was a 6/6 match. I was emotionally so happy that I was giving my one and only sister a gift of life, another chance at living. In August 2020, her transplant was completed and together with her medical team we were overcome with so much joy that she had no leukemic cells left in her bone marrow and that the future was looking bright for her. In the months to follow, we soon learnt that Summer had unfortunately relapsed, the transplant was was deemed unsuccessful. With numerous long hospital stays throughout the year and several consultations with leading Haematologists within Australia and overseas, an alternate treatment plan was established to get Summer into remission. Unexpectedly, things then took a turn for the worst, her disease was so aggressive that unfortunately she peacefully succumbed to it on the 20 March of this year at only 24 years of age. Please help us reach our goal and donate towards the Leukaemia Foundation as they supported Summer throughout her journey. These funds provide other families facing blood cancer with the care needed to make it through every scary, dark day and uncertain moment that follows a diagnosis. Otherwise, should you wish to partake in the Light the Night event, you are more than welcome to join us, please register via the link above. Once you have raised a minimum of $100 by the 26 September, you will receive a gold lantern to light on the night in memory of our courageous Summer who secretly battled her illness with the support of her mum, sister and brother-in-law.
