Today I chat with Sarah Lee who generously shares her inspiring story. Sarah was diagnosed with breast cancer in April 2017 and what she did whilst living through the treatment is truly remarkable. When her oncologist said she should get some exercise, like walking around the block, Sarah knew she could do better than that so she set herself challenges like hiking up a steep trail every week, she decided to run to her chemotherapy treatments and then Sarah challenged herself to run the City to Bay (12km fun run). The challenges just kept getting bigger. Imagine deciding to take up running during, not after, cancer!
Sarah has accomplished amazing feats, like running two marathons, but more than anything, Sarah has achieved equanimity. She is happy; she has changed her mind set and approaches life with vigour and compassion.
Sarah is generous by nature and she wants to support others who are facing breast cancer so she is fund raising for Breast Cancer Trials. (A group of world-leading breast cancer doctors and researchers based in Australia and New Zealand committed to exploring and finding better treatments for people affected by breast cancer through clinical trials research.)
Due to Coronavirus, some of Sarah’s fund raising efforts (like a planned movie night) have had to be cancelled so please, if you are able, support Sarah’s efforts by buying tickets to her raffle. There are some wonderful prizes like a pendant enhancer – 18k white gold with 13mm fresh water pearl from GW Cox My Jeweller – and a night in a King River View room at the Intercontinental (Adelaide).
