About

Jennifer Fitzgibbins is one of the strongest people I know.
She wrote this for me back in October 2013 for a Magazine to promote her Relay for Life team the Flamingo Bells.
At the time of this article Jen had been clear of Cancer since June 2012……


Looking back to when I was sent home with a recommendation to see a mental health professional, instead of a mammogram when I was certain I had breast cancer makes me proud I sought a second opinion. I found the lump at 24, I was a young breastfeeding mother of two, fighting the fear and anxiety of knowing there was something wrong. I knew it wasn’t just mastitis but it took me seven months to drum up the courage to see another doctor. I was diagnosed with breast cancer September 2010 and had immediate surgeries and began chemotherapy December 2010. In addition to chemotherapy and surgical measures I also underwent radiation therapy. After what felt like a lifetime of surgeries, chemotherapy and hospital admissions I finished chemotherapy on June 15th, 2012.

I am blessed to survive aggressive triple negative breast cancer and without the support of everyone around me I don’t think I would have gotten through relatively unscathed. Most women who undergo dose dense chemotherapy are unable to conceive but my husband and I were lucky enough to conceive 2 more beautiful boys making us a family of 6.


This bring us to today 4th November 2014, Last week Jennifer and her family received the devastating news that her cancer had returned unfortunately this time the cancer has spread to her Bones, Lymps Nodes as well as her brain, the Dr’s have given Jennifer 3-6mths to live.

Jennifer wishes to return to her homeland Canada to spend the last few months of her life with her family.
Her Husband Scott is a member of the Australian Defence Force and they have 4 adorable boys Ethan aged 7, Connor aged 5, Logan aged 2 and Riley aged 8mths.

There is no funding available through Defence for Jennifer’s Situation; however the Defence will be able to support the Scott and the Boys once they return to Australia.

We are asking for financial donations to assist with any costs the family incur for Jen's treatment. Donations to help ease the financial pressure and ensure Jen and the family get to enjoy every single moment they have together.


We know Jen is strong and she is a fighter, We are all behind Jen and are postive she will prove those doctors wrong and return to us in Australia.

On 17th June 2015 Jen passed away. SHe will live on in all our hearts and with in her 4 handsome boys and her husband Scott

Scott, a close friend of mine in Korea (where we are living) read of your story from my Facebook and personally asked me to give you this donation. Thoughts are with you and the boys. Kate Atkinson

Your strength and courage will never be forgotten. Someday, when we meet on the other side I hope to understand why such unfair things can happen to such good people. May your boys never forget your intense love for them. Sending all our love to your husband Scott, your boys, your family and friends. Love The McNeils ( Sarah, Rob, Lachlan, Callum and Arie)
