In 2015 at just 30 years of age, Katy was diagnosed with Cervical Cancer. She was recommended to follow an intensive course of radiation and chemotherapy, following up with horrendous brachytherapy. The specialists believed they had cured Katy and gave her an all clear in September. Within months Katy was experiencing similar symptoms again and her instinct knew it was back again.
Katy is a beautiful, funny, smart and wonderful woman. She is 33 years old and has recently married the love of her life, Cobby at their small bush block in Mossman. She has so much life to live and so much love to give. She is the best aunty to her nieces and nephew and the most fabulous friend to so many across the globe.
Usually most people would have a medical insurance or an income in the houeshold, but 2 years ago, Katy's husband Cobby had a massive stroke and is only just starting to go back to work part time on a contract basis, so there is no guarantee of a weekly income to cover these costs. Also New Zealander's in Australia have no access to welfare assistance or disability assistance which has made it even more difficult. Katy has considered returning to New Zealand but she is now married to a true blue Australian and intends on residing here for life. Her immediate family also all reside in Queensland, so here is the best place for her.
Please help us keep Katy's feet upon the red dust of this beautiful country. Her motto is "dont put dirt on my grave just yet".
If you can help out with some financial assistance, we would be so appreciative, from the bottom of our hearts.
