Vale Jarrod Anderson

19th August 1995 – 5 September 2022

Jarrod was your typical 26 year old living each day to the full .

Life changed forJarrod in the blink of an eye when he was diagnosed with osteosarcoma 11 short months ago in October of 2021.

The months that followed his diagnosis saw him fight his cancer with every ounce of his strength, with his loving and devoted mum Michelle by his side throughout, together with his siblings Jodie, Stephen and Sarah who provided support to their precious brother.

Two weeks ago Jarrod celebrated his 27th birthday with his remarkable family, and many special memories were made.

Early Monday morning, we were deeply saddened to learn Jarrod’s courageous battle with this cancer had ended surrounded by the love of his family – his one constant throughout.

Jarrod was never left in any doubt as to how much he was, and is, loved.

Tonight we send our heartfelt condolences, our love and strength to Jarrod’s family.

“Photographs are proof that once, even if just for a heartbeat, everything was perfect.”

The Anderson family would like to thank the staff at the Mater Hospital and the Palliative Care Team in Waratah.
