    All the comments above deserve the package, to be honest but i’m going to think of myself for a change with regards to this. “I’m saying no to letting this competition pass and yes to myself”. I’m on my fourh diagnosis and chemo every three weeks for the fore-seeble future. A treat like this would help so much with comfort and feeling sick. Fingers crossed!

    My friend who I started treatment with has relapsed after only 6 months. She is feeling overwhelmed at the thought of beginning chemo again. I would love to win this for Bronwyn, she is an absolute warrior and I just want to remind her she is loved and supported and that she can do this again!
