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.
