A story that will help others To have hope

A Liv On story from John

Share this story:

I am a melanoma patient for the past four years and after 13 operations to remove tumours and lymph glands in my left groin I am now undergoing immunotherapy.

While I do have a constant numbness in my groin & leg I do find that exercise has helped in my healing & wellness. By attending the Olivia Newton-John Cancer Centre Wellness Walk I thought that the 5km distance would be too much for me, but I found that the further I walked the less pain I had and the encouragement and support from others around me was a great asset.

My thanks goes too the doctors, nurses and support staff at the ONJ Centre and to Olivia for bringing this disease out into the public to give all of us encouragement to keep fighting.
