In November 2017, our dreamer Mandy first received the news that the hardest days were coming. A diagnosis of a rare and aggressive form of blood cancer stopped her in her tracks. The future promised with her loving husband and 2 young boys became uncertain. She is the heart of her family, and it is for them that she became the warrior she is now. Even after a relapse in 2018, she is unflinching in her fight against the cancer that has made time stand still for this young family. All that she asks from her dream is a moment to share with them to cherish through whatever is to come.
“We hadn’t visited Surfers Paradise in 10 years & I really wanted to make the holiday a fun one to remember with our children. My extended family joined us on our trip, so we could all be together & enjoy a special family Christmas together. I was lucky enough to spend my 38th Birthday & New Years with amazing views of the fireworks on Surfers Beach, it was spectacular” says Mandy.
