It was the scariest thing ever. I thought, "Who knows what this is? I’m going to die, at 21 years old."
Paula and Geoff's story
At first they thought it was eczema. Then it was dermatitis, then psoriasis. Finally, three years later Geoff found out what it was.
Family invaluable as cancer strikes twice
Judy credits the support of her treating team and family for getting her through a second diagnosis of cancer.
Peter's story, participant
In 2014 some unusual symptoms prompted Peter to visit his GP. He was quickly referred to a urologist and diagnosed with bladder cancer shortly thereafter.
Thankfully the cancer was able to be successfully treated, and Peter is grateful for the care provided by his GP and urologist. Peter urges all men to act on any symptoms quickly and to get regular check-ups.
Q&A with Danielle, participant
Danielle Piralis was just 38 years old when she was told by her doctor that she was pregnant and that she had chronic lymphocytic leukaemia (CLL). Sadly, a few days later, Danielle suffered a miscarriage.
Danielle still has many unanswered questions related to her CLL diagnosis, and whether her loss was a result of CLL. In an effort to find the answers to help others in a similar situation in future, Danielle has taken part in our Forgotten Cancers Project.
