ANGELA's TREATMENT & AWARENESS
Our beautiful friend Angela Oversby was diagnosed with Metastatic Adenocarcinoma commonly known as stage 4 bowel cancer on the 1st of December 2015, at the age of 31. This cancer was once regarded as an old mans disease but in recent times is being seen in younger people. Angela’s quest is for awareness throughout Australia of bowel cancer in young mothers and people in general.
Angela is a wife to Kevin and a mother to 18 month old Cooper, she showed no real symptoms of bowel cancer that couldn’t be put down to wear and tear of child birth, and a working mum with a toddler.
Angela who is a midwife has stopped working due to her constant chemo treatment in Perth, Kevin has had to take extended leave to support Angela and Cooper.
Whilst we can not take the cancer away, we can as their friends and community help this wonderful family alleviate some of the financial burden associated with cancer treatment.
Please let’s all unite and help Angela, Kevin and Cooper by donating.
'Today I sat through round 18 of Chemo with no problems. The last 2 months have been quite frustrating and also quite scary as my Bloods are starting to really feel the effects of cumulative chemo and not recovering well between treatments. This has meant the Oncologist has had to reduce my doses and I also had to have a month off to give my body a rest. I have also had a recent reaction to one of my chemo drugs which was stopped and treated quickly but meant I had to have the next dose in Intensive care. This was scary but I got through it. I have again today with no problems so fingers crossed the body is finally getting back on track. I am still feeling strong, it has probably helped I have put on weight..
We are having some lovely short trips away together which is wonderful, it helps me to not sit around and wait for the next fortnight and blood test to come around. The emotions of craving normality also takes over so keeping busy is good.
Thank you to Frank Drum and the #dryjuly donations, also to everyone for their continued support and messages. We have had to spend quite a bit of time in Sydney so this has made it possible not to have to travel so much in-between.'
We have been busy catching up with family and friends in between chemo cycles. Cooper is settling in well and is loving having his cousin to play with. He is keeping Mummy and Daddy busy as he is approaching the testing 2.
We appreciate all your support and well wishes and especially your help in spreading awareness of bowel cancer.
Thankyou Ange, Kev and Cooper.

Thinking of you all Ang, beautiful day in Esperance today, Owen and Emmas hockey teams both won the grand final so big celebrations here. Saw Tish yesterday and her neat little baby belly, she is looking good. Kat and Hamish were at the hockey final too so had a chance to catch up. Owen got stuck into the Stroh and had hockey ball to the knee so is a bit worse for wear! Love and hugs to you, Kev and little Cooper.
Thanks for the update Ange - you are an inspiration to all who know and love you. You are constantly in our thoughts beautiful lady. xx
