Check In Cap
My beautiful friend Kellie Finlayson (nee Gardner, just married!), was living her dream. Twenty five years old, in love, just welcomed her new born daughter Sophia into the world and relocated back home to South Australia. Unfortunately, this was all turned upside down.
Kellie had experienced minor gastrointestinal symptoms for some years, which had recently worsened with pregnancy and post-partum. Many doctors had reassured her that this was ‘part and parcel’. Kellie was finally tested in 2021 revealing Stage 4 Colorectal Cancer.
Over the next twelve months, Kellie endured endless radiotherapy, chemotherapy and surgeries. The end result was remission and she was ready live a normal life again with her family.
Unfortunately just before Christmas 2022, Kellie experienced tightness in her chest. Further investigation revealed widespread metastases, the worst of which is in her lungs and pelvis. The overall diagnosis — Terminal Lung Cancer.
Although Kellie’s diagnosis is terminal, she will not rest until every treatment has been explored. She would love nothing more than to be able to watch her beautiful 1 year old daughter grow up.
Together we have designed our CHECK IN cap. This cap is about raising awareness for a cruel disease. A disease which often goes undiagnosed until it’s too late. It is about making sure we seek medical attention when we know something off and to check in on ourselves, and others, if something is wrong.
100% of profits from the caps will be donated. 50% to Bowel Cancer Australia for research & awareness and 50% to Kellie to help cover the costs of ongoing treatments not covered by Medicare.
A special thank you to Mitchells Cap Co for helping us with the caps. If you would like to donate directly to Kellie’s cause, please visit the: gofundme page.
