For three years Linda Bullent has drawn upon the strength and agility of the tiger.
She has been fierce, resilient in the face of challenges, and strongly optimistic about her place in the world.
A second cancer diagnosis in 2016 - two years after her fight with stage two triple negative breast cancer, took the security of being in remission away from her.
But that wasn't enough to make her feel disheartened even though the prognosis was much worse this time.
She took the Team Tiger mantra into her mind and spirit, and onto her clothing. Her loved ones did the same.
She fought with every breath she took. She endured countless rounds of chemotherapy and radiation and even had to learn to walk again.
Now she is facing another hurdle head on.
An intense treatment regime has failed to strangle the tumours in several parts of her body and last month her oncologist delivered the news that nobody would ever want to hear.
It was time to stop treatment. There was nothing else the doctors could do to help.
My wonderful oncologist made the difficult decision that I needed to stop chemotherapy as its toll on my body now outweighed any impact it was having on the disease,she said.
The Maitland mother-of-three didn't want to hear those words. She also didn't want to know when her time on earth might come to an end.
"I want to hear the voice of hope," she said.
She already knew how precious and fragile life was. Her journey to this point had taught her that and she had been spending every minute of every day making the most of her time.
Not for herself, but for others.
That's the thing about this woman. She's selfless. She has been trying to help others while she has been fighting for her own life.
Her efforts have raised $59,000 for cancer research - something that will help the women who find themselves on the same journey in the future.
Now her days are limited she would be forgiven for calling it quits and making this next chapter all about her.
But that's not Linda.
She wants to help others and she is determined to do that for as long as she can.
Her ultimate goal is to raise $100,000 for cancer research. That's $41,000 to go and she needs the city's help to make it happen.
She hopes her fundraiser at Raworth Tennis Centre on November 19 will raise about $10,000.
There will be a $5 entry fee and a gold coin donation to participate in the wide variety of activities between 11am and 3pm.
There will also be tennis matches and a perpetual trophy awarded.
All proceeds will go to the Hunter Breast Cancer Association.
"It'll be a fun event, I hope the community will come along and support it," she said.
