In March this year, Chris Pelow was diagnosed with synovial sarcoma in his foot. Unfortunately, as you know, there is only one form of treatment, and Chris’s lower leg was amputated within a week of diagnosis. Chris is 24 years old and he joined Sydney University Hockey Club from Ireland, where he had previously represented his country. He quickly became an important and very popular member of the club. Chris is only young and, despite his battle with cancer and being away from his family, has decided to stay in Australia to continue living and working. His positive outlook on life and the way he has got back in to his routine after the operation has been an real inspiration to everyone who knows him. He is an incredible person.
