Within one week of waking up and noticing a lump on her breast, Jodie Grant was diagnosed with Breast Cancer. Pregnant at the time, Jodie had to make the heart breaking decision of aborting the baby in hope of her own survival.
After having the cancer removed and dealing with five and a half months of chemotherapy, Jodie nearly died due to an anaplhaxis reaction and spent the next 12 days in hospital.
Jodie’s husband had to give up work to look after her and the children. Financially the Grant Family have found it very tough to survive and enlisted in the help of WA Charity Direct by helping pay medical bills and living expenses.
