Like all siblings, Tammy and Jason had their ups and downs but it wasn’t until Jason was diagnosed in January 2011 with cancer that the two really reconciled and in fact became the closest of friends.
A former Australian Women’s Cricket team member, Tammy recalls sitting one day with her brother and telling him how much she wished she could take his cancer away.
As it turned out, Tammy had had a cyst on her right breast for a bit, and decided she should probably go and have it checked. She was soon diagnosed with cancer in the left breast. She didn’t know if she should share the news with Jason or not.
