Melissa is improving
Breast cancer patient Melissa Murphy is improving.
The mother of four, who featured in the Central Leader in June, needs $55,000 for herceptin treatment.
The New Windsor resident has raised around $26,000 thanks to fundraising efforts of the local community and church.
She is set to start receiving more Herceptin treatment, after recently finishing her last round of chemotherapy.
Melissa says she is feeling quite well, after initially struggling with the side effects of chemotherapy.
A garage sale will be held this Saturday at the Encounter Christ Centre, 495 Rosebank Rd, Avondale, from 8am to raise more funds.
