Being told you have cancer can quickly become one of the most confronting moments in your life. But what is it really like when your doctor delivers the news?
We spoke to two different women about their experience with cancer, including how they dealt with it, and the little things that made their fight more bearable.
Despite each individual’s experience with cancer being unique, both Vera and Robyn know first-hand how the funds raised by Dry July go a long way to help those on their cancer journey, with the funds raised each year going towards cancer support organisations across Australia.
Here’s what Vera and Robyn had to say:
Vera na Ranong.
Vera na Ranong was 34-years-old when she was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s lymphoma in November, 2016. This went on to become a five month battle, which she has since successfully recovered from. Vera got to experience first-hand the small things, which can make the biggest impact to a cancer patient’s life during treatment.
