Former local, now Kadina lady, Mel King (nee Grigg) received a wonderful surprise before Christmas – she found out she was going to be a mum!
“It was a huge shock but also a huge miracle, and we are very excited,” Mel said.
In June 2004, Mel suffered a miscarriage, and in November that year, was diagnosed with breast cancer.
While she didn’t have chemotherapy, Mel underwent radiotherapy and went on breast cancer drug, Tamoxifen, for five years.
