Laura McNamee

Stars of Nowra 2024

🌟 Meet Laura McNamee 🌟

Laura works as a Clinical Nurse Specialist in a Post Anesthetic Care Unit, she has been nursing for the last 18 years! She loves making her patients feel safe and comfortable when they are most vulnerable

Laura has wanted to be a part of Stars for quite a few years but was always too nervous to try. However, after watching her partner go through cancer, the treatments and the side effects made her realise that if her partner can endure it all and still keep a brave face then she can dance and raise funds for current and future cancer patients.

Laura began ballet when she was just 5 years old but it was only for a few years! She loves dancing but mainly on the dance floor of at a concert! Anything from the 90’s or early 2000’s is guaranteed to get Laura up and moving, even after she has broken her ankle, three times in the past!

An interesting fact about Laura is that she can dead lift 110kgs. Her dream dance partner would be Usher!Β 

My Updates

Please help and donate

My wife had bowel cancer a few years ago and underwent major bowel surgery to have the tumour removed along with half her bowel, she then began six months of chemotherapy treatment leaving her with many side effects. Β She now has chemotherapy induced peripheral neuropathy which towards the end of treatment left her not being able to walk unaided. Β 

Funds from events like this are used for much needed support for patients, families and their carers. Transport for patients to and from treatments, in home nursing visits and counselling, help paying bills and other expenses as many have to stop work when going through treatment.Β 
We received all of these things mentioned above so I can personally say I have seen where these funds are used. Β 
So please dig deep and donate what you can for such an amazing cause.Β 

Thank you πŸ’œ
