‘Doing it for all those who can’t’: Melanoma survivor breaks down

Melanoma survivor Jay Allen will be walking from Adelaide to Sydney in the name of those who can’t.

Jay’s Longest Melanoma March will see him walk 2000km in 50 days to raise awareness and money for the Melanoma Institute.

He breaks down as he tells Alan Jones about 29-year-old Amy, a melanoma sufferer who will be cutting the starting ribbon on Sunday.

“She’s been told she’s gonna die Alan,” says Jay.

“That’s why we’re doing the walk, mate. Doing it for all those who can’t.”

Amy’s father, Tony, heard Jay’s interview and rang in to speak to Alan.

He says his daughter has four months to live.

“It was just so aggressive. We got rid of it straight away, and then it went into her lymph nodes.

“It went from her lymph nodes into her lungs, and then from her lungs, it went into her brain.”
