Help Cat Fight Cancer
Our beautiful friend Cat needs our help. Our aim is simple; to relieve the financial burden during the harrowing journey she is about to embark upon. In August this year, a day before her birthday, Cat was diagnosed with very aggressive Stage 4 breast cancer. Within weeks Cat had undergone a double mastectomy and was immediately called back in to remove remaining lymph’s due to additional tumours being detected. She is now undergoing chemotherapy and radiation where she will; in the multiple doctors’ own words… “ Be blasted” for the next 6 months. Anyone that knows Cat knows that if she had it her way she would quietly fight this on her own, being the incredible proud, unassuming and regal woman she is.
She’s still grappling with the knowledge that we have even set up this page, reaching out so far and wide. But she’s not Admin so she can’t do anything about it, ha! But we’d risk her ire because Cat is an incredibly loyal, loving and giving friend who has always put others before herself. One of the many proofs of her selflessness is that she moved away from her haven Byron Bay to become the primary carer for her beautiful mum Toni who lives in Perth. A responsibility she was proud and honoured to take on, out of love and respect.
Through this whirlwind of challenges, Cat has been incredibly brave, pragmatic as always, often hilarious, and stoic throughout the entire process. Her only vulnerable moment was the fear of losing her sanctuary. Her lovely and much loved little apartment in Cottesloe. When everything else was out of her control she couldn’t bare the thought of her place of escape to be taken from her as well. So, our goal is to raise $60,000 to cover cost of rent, bills, and any out of pocket medical cost. We don’t want her to deal with the stress the financial impact will have on her ability to recover successfully. We will endeavour to keep everyone updated on further developments and the progress of the treatments.
Thank you with all our hearts for anything you can contribute.

Much Love...Cats gang xxx
