It was in 1992 when a friend of mine, Martha Brown OAM, knocked on the door of my small general practice in Orange, NSW.

Martha asked if I could be the doctor for a camp run by Camp Quality — the charity that provides support to children with cancer and their families, including retreats. I jumped at the chance to help out.
