I'm heartbroken to share with you the passing of one of our members, Katsrule.
I and a few others have been lucky enough to get to know her in person, as Tracey... Loving wife, mother to two boys... And avid traveller.
Tracey was diagnosed with Melanoma a while ago. The Clark 4 cancer was removed, however sadly it metastasised to her brain and lungs.
Tracey was very open about her cancer journey, and thanks to her Subbi and I had our skin checked. Subbi was all clear, I was diagnosed with two Basal Cell Carcinomas and an early stage Melanoma. Thankfully mine have been successfully removed, and because it was early the survival rate is 95%. I will be forever thankful to Tracey for sharing her journey, and have done the same with mine.
Tracey was just 50 years old, her boys 19 and 12...
Please, to everyone, wear sunscreen!!! Get your spots checked...
And never stop travelling!!!
RIP dear friend.
Lise & Subbi
