Belinda Jane (Belle) Emmett was born on 12th
April 1974 (same date and age as my Louise Jo-Anne
Rogers) and passed on 11th November
(Remembrance Day- Armistice Day) 2006 at 32
years of age age. She was born in Umina on the Central
Coast in NSW Australia. In her teens was go her first big break at Coast Rock FM, her
local radio station.
She appeared in Hey Day in 1987 and Home &
Away in 1988 and it was during her time with that show that she was
diagnosed with breast cancer. She went with chemotherapy and seemed to be in
remission. She then went to All Saints in 1998 and sadly again secondary
bone cancer appeared. Her next bout with this insidious disease was when she was
filming The Nugget
and was told she would not be
able to overcome this last set back.
She married Rove M M Manus at Randwick's' Mary Immaculate
She sad in the early hours of 11th November with her friends, family and
her beloved Rove at her side. She fought so very hard to overcome it and she was
so brave and always thinking of others. Her message was early detection,
don't let lumps go without going to seek medical attention. Sadly she did
not do this, thinking that she was too young (23). Let this be a sound message
for us all. Men & women.
