THE date, Thursday, May 22, 2003, is in Deb Rielly’s new book ‘Just Because’.
It’s the day that one of Wonthaggi’s best-known and most loved citizens was diagnosed with malignant breast cancer.
Of course, it would be there.
However, while Deb has used her battle with cancer as a fighting inspiration to others and a powerful way to raise awareness about taking your own health issues seriously, it doesn’t define her.
She is an amazing person anyway who had already lived, and goes on living, a fantastic life full of family, friends and capacity-stretching challenges in both sport and her professional life.
It’s all there in the book.
Cancer is just another mountain to climb for Deb.
