Kelleigh was first diagnosed with breast cancer when breastfeeding.

She is a mum to three children and says they keep her going. She was diagnosed with secondary breast cancer in 2012 and her oncologist told her that there were limited treatment options for her in New Zealand.

Kelleigh managed to get on a breast cancer clinical trial in Australia and moved there for six months to take part in the trial. She believes New Zealand should fund more cancer medicines. Note: BCAC notes with sadness that Kelleigh passed away in late 2019.
