  • We have a Donor!

    Asking for help is not something My Husband or I do very well. We are lucky people who have many opportunities others do not, and are grateful for the abundance that we already felt we had in our lives! We both felt a sense of guilt and shame over asking…

  • Happy New Year

    Heading into this new year, I’ve been struggling with a lot of emotions. Usually the New Year is a chance for me to hit the reset button, set new goals, and plan new adventures. It brings hope, renewal and excitement.  This year it brings the most uncertainty I have ever…

  • The Wild Ride

    This year has without a doubt, been the wildest ride I’ve ridden. It started off with a shock leukaemia diagnosis, and then went on to be filled with extremely wonderful highs in my music life, that left me feeling more proud than ever about the music and magic happening within Runaway…

  • Short + Sweet Update

  • Raw Truth & Honesty

    I Don’t often post things that aren’t positive but that’s not a fair representation of what I’m really feeling all the time and I think it’s important to let other people know it’s OK to feel that way.  My Blood Counts were up a bit as of my last check…

  • Global News

    In the face of uncertainty, moving ahead with my dreams and plans seemed to be the only logical solution. It’s been great being distracted from the challenges and the limbo that Leukemia can bring. Here is my band performing on Global news this week to promote our new single ‘Hard…
