Inspirational farmer fights multiple brain tumours and crippling drought but never loses hope

Amongst all the inspirational and amazing responses we received from our recent call-out to our community for farmers in need, there was one farming story that we knew we just had to share and her name is Cathy Noakes.

Cathy has been fighting a battle with the land during this drought but also a battle with not one but two surgeries to remove two separate brain tumours.

Below we share Cathy’s inspirational story of survival in the face of adversity, in her own words, and how it has made her an advocate for Brainstorm a brain cancer research charity.
