Chloe bounces back

Wanneroo Times - - News -

BE­FORE be­ing di­ag­nosed with brain can­cer in Au­gust 2013, Chloe Clements, of Pearsall, was a na­tional gym­nast and trained in five dis­ci­plines of dance.

The 17-year-old was forced to aban­don her pas­sions for two years as she re­ceived treat­ment for child­hood brain can­cer, but last year re­joined Tal­ent Co Dance and En­ter­tain­ment in Wangara.

“I dropped back my train­ing nine months be­fore the di­ag­no­sis be­cause of the pain,” the Woodvale Sec­ondary Col­lege stu­dent said.

“Be­ing a re­ally ac­tive per­son, it was hard to not do any­thing for two years. Last year I prop­erly went back to it and I’ve been tak­ing it slowly. But I’m lov­ing be­ing back and I’ve set more goals to achieve.”

One of those goals is to ab­seil down the QVI build­ing on Thurs­day as part of the Ur­ban De­scent QV1 Ab­seil to raise money for The Ad­ven­tur­ers that funds re­search into child­hood brain can­cer.

She will have The Ad­ven­tur­ers chief ex­ec­u­tive An­gela Skates by her side.
