We'd like to ask our community for financial assistance to raise funds to help Belinda pay for her treatment and rehabilitation.

Belinda Franklin (nee Snellgrove) was diagnosed with Breast Cancer, in November 2013, after noticing an inverted nipple. As you can imagine this shocking news rocked them, being only one month away from their very first wedding anniversary. 




In the months to come Belinda was also trying to heal what was thought to be a rotator cuff injury. After further investigation it was revealed the cancer had unfortunately metastasised into her shoulder. She has now been diagnosed with Stage 4 cancer.


On the 5th of August 2014 Belinda had a major back spasm, immobilising her to the point of needing full time care. Her loving husband Tom quickly decided to leave his employment in order to become her full time carer. Belinda continues to be immobilised with the cancer, being basically bed bound. She has extremely limited use of her right arm due to the tumour and relies on others to shower her and help with basic daily functions. Since her diagnosis she has lost at least 20 kg but thankfully now is managing to maintain her weight and making small weight gains weekly.


The road to recovery for Belinda is long, but with the help of her family and friends, she is managing to maintain a positive outlook and is taking one day at a time. In the photo below you can see she is putting on a very brave face. On this day she was feeling up to a short outing for a brief revitalising dip in the salt water. The energy required for her to do this was immense and exhausting. Walking any distance, when she actually can, is very slow and requires support.




Belinda is undergoing extensive treatment to heal her body and the cancer. For someone who has always been aware of her health and wellbeing it is certainly clear that cancer does not discriminate. Her treatment is expensive and with no wage being earned, their personal funds are desperately under strain. 


Amazingly through all of this Belinda and Tom have managed to maintain an extremely positive attitude. She has many challenges ahead of her and will continue to overcome them by taking one day at a time. Their whole life has been put on hold as they deal daily with the task of treating this debilitating and indiscriminate illness.




It’s a massive request, but we would like to ask our community for some financial assistance to raise funds in order to help Belinda and Tom pay for her continued treatment and rehabilitation. Hopefully we can get some people around us and make this happen for my beautiful sister. Your donation will be greatly appreciated and we thankyou in advance for sharing this link with others who may also be in a position to help.
