Lantern of hope – Light the Night

SURVIVOR: Mount Gambier resident Melena Roughana, husband James and daughters Savannah and Avangalena last Christmas before her diagnosis.

WHEN Mount Gambier mother Melena Roughana shines a white lantern at Adelaide’s Light the Night tonight, it will signify a celebration of her survival with her family and a chance to reflect on the support received through the many challenges faced this year.

Diagnosed with non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma in March, Ms Roughana had no idea where her cancer journey would take her.

Neither did she know where she would stay when forced to relocate to Adelaide for life-saving treatment.
