After multiple misdiagnosis, Chanelle, 35 year old wife and mother of two beautiful kids has been fighting stage 4 bowel cancer for nearly three years. Her courage, will to succeed and determination to be around to raise her kids has brought her through 2 x clinical trials, 6 x operations and countless rounds of chemotherapy. She had made great progress last year thanks to nearly 3 months of integrative therapy in Thailand and this treatment holds Chanelle’s best hope of finally finding a cure.
Since coming home in January she had some planned surgeries and progress has stalled.
In April 2023, we got the shocking news the cancer has spread to the brain.
Chanelle flew to Bangkok in May 2023 for a week undergoing testing but unfortunately was not able to continue at the clinic on the IV schedule. She has considerable swelling and the clinic decided that to continue there was too risky. She returned home and is in Perth with her family completing an oral chemotherapy protocol from the clinic. She hopes to recover to get back to Thailand in the coming weeks.
On the June long weekend we raised $91k from our very successful “Cycle for Chanelle” fundraising event. 40 riders plus 30 support crew came together to ride 200kms from Moora to Fremantle to raise money for Chanelle and her family. Whilst we are currently at 7.5 weeks of treatment in Thailand for Chanelle our goal is to get to 12 weeks which is the minimum treatment Chanelle requires.
Your ongoing generous support and contributions is going directly towards keeping Chanelle hopeful of one day seeing her kids grow old.
We thank you from the bottom of our hearts ❤️
