Sarah's story

"I Relay because I want to keep my grandmother's spirit alive, and to raise money to help keep other special people alive."


I'm participating in the Canberra Relay For Life to celebrate the life of my grandmother.

She passed away more than fifteen years ago, so more of my life has been spent with her gone than with her around, but it still feels just like yesterday that she was here, cracking dirty jokes.

She was a selfless and determined woman, she made a damn good Christmas pudding and she loved her grandkids like nothing else. I hope that I'm as tough and full of life as she was.
