Clare is a vibrant single mother of two, always looking to put others first. When diagnosed with cancer, she felt like she was battling cancer alone, and reached out for a helping hand.
“When I was going through cancer I felt fearful and alone, I was facing radiation treatment after already undergoing two surgeries. I was worries about how this would affect my teenage daughters; I wanted to be strong as I have always been there for them.
With no other family in Perth, I wondered who would be there for me. Solaris Cancer Care became my sanctuary, a welcome island in a very turbulent and grey sea.
The centre gave me the strength I needed. What I loved most is, it is about taking control over parts of your health journey and feeling empowered and nurtured along the way. I am so thankful and grateful for the support that was so generously given to me on my road to a healthy and happy life.”
