Ms JENNY AITCHISON (Maitland) (20:58:56): I recognise Maitland inspiring mother of three Linda Bullent, who is fighting cancer and fundraising for a cure at the same time.
Linda has been bravely doing battle with breast cancer for the past six years. In 2016 she received a second cancer diagnosis but remained resilient and ready to fight. She endured rounds of chemotherapy and had to learn to walk again.
Sadly, recently Linda received news from her oncologist that the cancer treatment had to stop as it was doing more damage to her body than helping to treat the disease. Despite this, Linda is still out fundraising to find a cure.
She aims to raise $100,000 for the Hunter Breast Cancer Association and is over halfway there. I have been to one of her events and can attest to her enthusiasm and optimism.
She is an inspiration to us all. I wish Linda every bit of luck with her very noble cause.
