Roz in her first year of competing on the BDO circuit managed a high of being ranked 13. She reached 2 semi-finals and 7 quarter-finals in her first year, and beat some of the best players in the world.
One of her career highlights was competing in the BDO world trophy. Having been invited as a qualifier of a competition, she got to play the top 14 ladies on television. Roz reached the semi-finals. Unfortunately, Roz was re diagnosed with primary breast cancer. Having already had a mastectomy, and chemotherapy in 2015, she has had to undergo another mastectomy, chemotherapy and radiotherapy. A gruelling treatment process for anyone, let alone twice in 3 years.
Obviously not being able to attend any of the ranked competitions Roz has now dropped to number 24, and narrowly missed out on being a ranked player for this year's BDO world trophy.
Unperturbed Roz is determined to make it back to the Lakeside stage and re-gain her rankings.
Unfortunately, the prize money within the ladies game is at the other end of the spectrum to the PDC and the men's BDO. The last 8 of the world's only receiving £1,000, even though the tour costs roughly £8,000 a year to do.
Thank you for taking the time reading this, and any help with travel costs, entry fees and travel insurance (which is now very expensive) would be much appreciated.
