Mel takes it all in her stride
MEL EVERSON is determined not to let breast cancer ruin her active lifestyle.
The Lismore Court officer has barely taken time off work to have chemotherapy, and she has no plans to slack off in two months when her radiotherapy begins on the Gold Coast.
"I'll drive up each day after work ? I won't let this beat me," she said. "I've had a few days off when I've been too sick, but the people I work for have been fantastic."
Mel, along with 23 of her friends and family, will take it all in her stride on October 9 and 10 in the Cancer Council's Relay for Life at Lismore's Oakes Oval.
In the meantime, Mel is raising money for the Cancer Council with a 'guess the number of lollies in the jar' competition at the Lismore Courthouse.
