Australian TV presenter Catriona Rowntree shares major cancer update for sister Lucinda who is battling deadly disease


Catriona Rowntree provided an update on her older sister Lucinda’s health, revealing that Lucinda, who has been diagnosed with stage 4 incurable cancer, is responding positively to chemotherapy. Rowntree initially shared her sister’s diagnosis in April 2023 and recently expressed gratitude for the medical progress and doctors’ satisfaction with Lucinda’s response to treatment.

“Lucinda is doing well. Very tired as she nears the end of her chemo, but the doctors are happy and results will be in this week,” she told the Herald Sun.


“Her daughter Katie just got engaged and her other daughter Georgia has been asked by Blue Illusion to be in a shoot with my mum celebrating three generations of women.”

“Lots to look forward to … and live for.”

Rowntree announced the dreadful news in April 2023, while also celebrating her elder sister’s birthday.

“A bit of a personal post for me,” she wrote at the time.

“Today is my big sister Lucinda’s birthday, Lucinda is a true gem.”

Catriona Rowntree expressed her admiration for her sister Lucinda, highlighting her captivating smile and infectious laughter that has a heartwarming effect on everyone around her.

“We have recently found out that Lucinda has stage 4 cancer, which is apparently incurable,” she wrote.

“I’m trying so hard to choose my words carefully here, other than to say a lot of tears have been shed, BUT Lucinda is fighting and positive.

“We all are. She has started chemo (sheer hell) and immunotherapy (our bright light) at Royal North Shore Hospital.

“Lucinda is now unable to work as she commits to the fight of her life.”

Rowntree stated that her sister’s friends had created a GoFundMe to “ease the household stress.”

“Lucinda is the first to be placed on a new medical trial, that may one day help a loved one of yours,” Rowntree wrote.

“So, if you’d like to donate, thank you, trust me when I say to live your life to the absolute max, none of us know what each moment holds for us and please say a little prayer for Lucinda tonight.

“Thank you.”
