“I have been diagnosed with brain tumours twice. My first diagnosis was in 2008. Thankfully, the two tumours were successfully operated on and removed. In December 2020 I was diagnosed with another brain tumour and in late 2021 I was diagnosed with yet another. Although these tumours are presenting as benign and non life threatening, it still causes health problems which impact on my quality of life.
Once again, I have experienced the fear and uncertainty that comes with a brain tumour diagnosis. It’s often not well understood by the general public that so-called ‘benign’ tumours can still have serious health and life consequences and will sometimes develop into malignant (‘cancerous’) tumours.
Since my first diagnosis, I have worked to do what I can to raise awareness of the tragic impact of brain tumours and brain cancer, to improve brain cancer survival rates and to work with other advocates and organisations in fighting for a cure. Organising Walk4BrainCancer Tasmania is just one of the many ways in which I have supported this cause. Walk4BrainCancer Tasmania events have so far raised over $200,000 for Cure Brain Cancer Foundation. By registering for this 9th Walk4BrainCancer Tasmania virtual walk or sponsoring a participant, you can help combat a disease which kills more young Australians than any other cancer and more Australian children than any other disease.” – Catryna Bilyk
