From a cattle farmer and mother of three to an AML diagnosis: Regina’s story

Living in regional NSW as a cattle farmer, Regina Batten noticed she was becoming increasingly fatigued. It was a week before her wedding however, so a blood cancer diagnosis was the last thing on her mind. After a visit to the doctor and some blood tests, it wasn’t long before Regina was told the news – she had acute myeloid leukaemia.

Regina was rushed to hospital in Sydney where she had chemotherapy, radiation, a relapse and a double-chord stem cell transplant.

An honest and raw discussion, Regina talks openly about how blood cancer impacted her relationships.
