WHEN Tony Roberts was diagnosed with terminal cancer, his daughter Suellen Dunbar was consumed by one question – why?
But through her dad’s extraordinarily positive attitude, Ms Dunbar decided to channel her emotions – and considerable talent – towards the fight to prevent other families suffering like hers has.
She formed Team Tony Roberts, and along with 20 or so others, will make the symbolic march around Exies Oval in Griffith next weekend as part of Relay forLife.
The Coleambally mum-of-two is doing everything she can in a bid to raise money for the Cancer Council’s dream of finding a cure to the devastating disease.
“Dad knows it’s too late for him but we want to raise money so it might help others in future,” Ms Dunbar said.
“He has an amazing attitude – he’s gonna fight to the end and not give up. Last March they gave him six months to two years to live and we’re already a year in.”
Mr Roberts, 60, will take part in the survivor walk at Relay for Life.
“He’s just so positive, it makes it hard for me to get upset,” Ms Dunbar said.
