I te marama o Pipiri 2016 i hau mai te rongo kua pāngia taku māmā e te mate ūtaetae. Huripoki katoa tōku ao, nā konā i puta mai te pōuri, te riri, te mamae, te āmaimai me ngā tini roimata mō tōku kōkā. He wahine hūmarie, he wahine pakari, he wahine mōhio, he wahine pukumahi hoki! Ahakoa ngā tini wero kei mua i a ia kei te hoe tonu ia i te waka o te ora, kei te whawhai ia i tēnei o ngā taniwha weriweri.
I ngā marama kua pahure kua tino rongo i te aroha mai i ngā whanaunga, ngā hoa, ngā hoamahi, ngā tākuta ngā nēhi me ngā tūroro e whawhai ana i tēnei pakanga nui. Kua kaha tautoko mai te katoa i tōku whanau, nā whai anō kei te kohi pūtea au ki te tautoko i Te Kāhui Matepukupuku o Aotearoa. Ko te hua o roto he tāpiri atu ki ngā pūtea rangahau ki a kimi rongoa, kia tautoko hoki i ngā wāhine o Aotearoa kua pāngia e te mate ūtaetae.
In June 2016 my beautiful māmā was diagnosed with breast Cancer. I was absolutely shattered and have never felt so helpless. My mum is a very strong, smart, selfless and caring person and despite all that has happened she still remains as positive as can be. She is four months into her chemotherapy treatment plan and everyday that she opens her eyes is a good day! I'm truly overwhelmed and grateful for all the support we have had from whānau, friends, co-workers, nurses, doctors and the Cancer Society.
I’m taking part in The Pink Star Walk (10km) to raise money for The New Zealand Breast Cancer Foundation because eight women a day are diagnosed with breast cancer in New Zealand. The money raised from my walk will be used to fund vital research projects and support women recovering from and living with breast cancer in New Zealand.
Nei rā taku tono ki a koutou te awhina me te tautoko mai i tēnei kaupapa!
I cannot do this alone but with your help we can make a difference. Any donation is truly appreciated.
