Meet the People behind OCAGI
Polly is the founder of OCAGI since its inception in 2012 after losing her husband to Oesophageal Cancer. Polly is the President and the main point of contact for OCAGI. Due to COVID Polly had to make the decision of moving from face to face support and now runs an online support group for oesophageal cancer via facebook "Oesophageal Cancer Support Group".
Polly was awarded Campbelltown Woman of the Year in 2014, and is the recipient of the Community Fellowship from Western Sydney University.
Polly is a loving mother of two boys, Cejay and Addision and a doting grandmother of five.
