Mrs McIntyre therefore needed extensive chemotherapy and radiation.

"I’ve had four rounds of chemo every three weeks, and they took about six hours to administer," she said.

"I’m on a double dose, the highest strength chemo you can possibly get.

"Then I’ve had seven rounds of daily Monday to Friday radiation."

The couple's friends who later knew of the newlywed's diagnosis gathered to raise funds on the Sunshine Coast’s Lake Kawana called Light Up The Lake.

Her family also showed support by holding an event tagged 'Shave For Meaghin'.

"When I was doing the chemo the first five weeks I was working half the hours I was meant to.

"You just get so tired, and then obviously after that I’m still not working at all now, not until January.

"It’s been nearly four months with no work, just Scott’s income."
