Adams Cancer Journey

In October this year, Adam was diagnosed with Testicular Cancer at 35. He underwent surgery to remove the cancer and 4 weeks later started chemotherapy.

The first week of Chemo proved to be a very challenging week. The first day he had a bad reaction to one of the Chemo drugs. The second day they were unable to cannulate him so they inserted a PICC line followed by another reaction to the chemo drugs. That night Adam was taken by ambulance back to hospital with heart troubles. He had to get his chemo as an inpatient while they monitored his heart closely. After 4 days in hospital he was allowed home.

Week 3 Adam received chemo in the morning, completing his first cycle. He had reached the halfway mark! Unfortunately that afternoon I took him back to emergence with a fever. When you are having chemo, they treat a fever very seriously. Luckily with some fluids and antibiotics, he improved and was able to come home the following morning.

His treatment definitely hasn't been smooth sailing and has started to take its toll. For those who know Adam, he loves to fish. I wanted to do something nice for him so I decided to raise money for him to go on a 5 day fishing charter with the amazing guys from Renegade fishing charters at Arlie beach. This has been a dream of his since we went out on our first charter with them 4 years ago. Something for him to look forward to once his treatment has finished. I feel helpless watching
him struggle with treatment and it would mean so much to me to see him do something he enjoys once this is all over.
