My name is Cher and I am a 2x Cancer patient of incurable ovarian Cancer. Having experiance chemotherapy in 2013 to 2014 for 18 months then again in 2015 to 2016 for 6 months I know first hand how much this gruelling therapy eats away at your body and soul. So with that my mission is to raise as much money as I possible can to help put together as many chemo packs as possible to help give a little comfort and hope to cancer paitince entering into chemotherapy treatment. 

The packs provide everything a cancer patient needs to help ease the symptoms of chemo, such as a cool pillow to help with burning hot sweats, pack of sweets to help take away the nasty metallic taste in their mouth, thermal beany hats to keep their head warm when the ice cold feeling happens at the back of the head. There's also sickness band for he wrists to help with the effect of nausea and fluffy socks to help keep feet warm whilst having chemo. Herbel teas and packs of buscuits with a balls to cancer mug will also be put into he packs plus much much more. 

This mission is taking me on my own personal journey to help find my identity again. My cancer journey totally striped me everything I used to be. My women hood and confidence desolved. The thought of being on a life time scale and been told my life was going to be cut short with each diagnosis left me feeling so broken and a women, as a mother, as a nana and as a friend. 

I will be vlogging my journey daily for the next 6 months on
