A little bit about myself
I have lived in the Blacktown LGA for 40 years. I decided to take part in this event because I am a cancer survivor myself. At the age of 25 I was diagnosed with cancer of the nasal/sinus region and underwent an operation to remove the tumour, followed by chemotherapy and radiotherapy treatment. After overcoming cancer I struggles with the effects it had on my mental health and physical appearance and as a result found myself battling a chronic substance addiction. I want to raise awareness and funds for Cancer Council so they may continue to support other people affected by cancer, advocate on behalf of the community on cancer related issues and work towards a cancer free future. I have no dance experience whatsoever and would have to describe myself as pretty uncoordinated when it comes to the dance floor, so I guess I'm really looking forward to the challenge of getting out of my comfort zone to learn something totally new while also keeping fit and healthy.
