Linda Luong

I’m walking in memory of my mum Kim

One year ago my mum Kim lost her 8 year battle with cancer. 

Not many people knew about it. In her typical fighting style, she didn't want anyone to treat her differently, and took on the battle with all the courage and grit that we knew her for.

Sometimes it was hard to think of her as battling for her life. She bounced back from surgeries, continued to run errands, kept all her hair despite the chemotherapy, kept up with her grandchildren (of the 2 and 4-legged variety), and insisted on walking herself to appointments.

In the end it wasn't enough, but she succeeded in making most of the time she had. In between treatments she was constantly travelling, determined to see as much of the world and spend as much time with family and friends as she could.

A couple of years ago we talked about doing the 7 Bridges Walk together, but ultimately her health didn't allow it. So this year I'm doing it for her.

On Sunday 27 October, Ben and I will be walking 28km around Sydney Harbour, to raise money for cancer research.

Please sponsor me and help those affected by cancer. Every step counts because all funds raised will help Cancer Council work towards the vision of a cancer free future. Thank you for your support!

Thank you to my Sponsors
