Mary Jo, Melbourne VIC
My beloved aunt, godmother and professional mentor died, aged 49, after a 7-year battle with metastasized breast cancer. Robin was a vibrant teacher, interpreter, musician, photographer and vegetarian who exercised regularly. Why her? I've already had four years more of a wonderful life than she got. I can't believe that she missed out on so much, and I don't want anyone else's life to be curtailed like hers.
I am honoured to help my fellow Australians in fighting this pernicious disease.
