Leah was diagnosed with breast cancer and beat it. She then was diagnosed with multiple brain tumours and was told nothing could be done. She didn’t take this news lying down and found a world recognised treatment in the USA. So off she went to Oklahoma. It was 2004 and she was happily married and had youngsters, 4 and 10 at the time. The treatment was hugely successful and only took 1 day. She returned home and went back to work straight way. This was truly amazing stuff. 2 years later 4 tumours returned. She was gain forced overseas and met up with this Robot again. She had the same experience and returned home again. However this time the ending was different. Due to all the chemo Leah had received for her breast cancer her liver failed and she passed away. Her husband was left a single dad but he had this secret. World class cancer care that no one knew about. So with all his issues and grief Leahs husband set about helping people with cancer gain access to this revolutionary treatment in hospitals overseas. While he was doing this he was helping get the treatment to Australia. In 2014 he was successful with Perth opening Australias 1st Cyberknife cancer centre at Sir Charles Gairdner hospital. Leahs hubbie was nominated for Australian of the Year for all his work helping people with cancer, including kids. Now some of his supporters are trying to start up a registered charity to raise awareness and the money to get this treatment in each state of Australia. Maybe we could name 1 after Leah?
