After her treatment she began swimming with a local masters club and not only did it help her mental and physical fight back, she discovered a previously unknown talent. Shelley went on to win 3 gold medals in her age group at the 2004 NZ masters Games and went on to train as an Encore Instructor with the YWCA. to celebrate her fifth year in remission, Shelley cycled 500km through Vietnam and Cambodia with her husband, in a fundraising venture for Oxfam NZ. Sink or Swim is her poignant, inspiring and highly entertaining story of her journey from cancer victim to cancer survivor.
