Just weeks in to filming The Block Sky High in 2013, contestant Bec Douros experienced a deeply personal tragedy that played out in front of the cameras and the nation.
After a five-year struggle, her beloved mother Rosa died of breast cancer.
Four years on, the interior designer has opened up about her loss in an effort to highlight the invaluable support provided by the McGrath Foundation’s breast care nurses.
“I will never forget the wonderful nurses that helped my mother through her illness and were by her side as the illness took her life,” Douros wrote on social media.
“I remember thinking to myself how hard of a job that must be for them, to get so close to someone that you know very well may not come out the other end of what they were facing.”
