Chloe bounces back
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.
