Plate of Origin contestant Chrys Hong, 30, reveals her heartbreaking stage-four cancer diagnosis

Plate of Origin contestant Chrys Hong has revealed her heartbreaking stage-four cancer diagnosis.

The 30-year-old Sydney DJ explained to The Daily Telegraph on Saturday, that she is battling terminal colon cancer that has spread to her bones, liver and lymphatic system. 

Chrys told the publication that before being diagnosed, she thought nothing of her on-and-off stomach pain, putting it down to feeling nervous during filming, but eventually sought medical help.

She said she was eventually convinced by her sister to seek medical help, but the two doctors and a specialist she initially consulted dismissed her symptoms. 

It was only after visiting a third doctor, who ran several tests, that she was told she needed to go to hospital immediately.

‘The next day he called me back and said: “This is really serious, we have to put you in the hospital,” Chrys recalled.

The cancer spread to her lymphatic system, bones and her liver, which she said the doctors were unable to operate on.

She told the publication that was put on chemotherapy, but had to stop after three rounds because her body was not coping with it.

The amateur cook said she is now on a targeted treatment that is less abrasive.

Despite the life-changing news, Chrys proved her resilience by continuing filming and finishing the series.

‘Who said cancer patients can’t cook,’ she defiantly said, adding that it was important for her to complete filming and not give up. 

Chrys hopes to inspire young people to listen to their bodies and take their health seriously.

‘I’m not saying that all GPs are bad, but there are some GPs who don’t take responsibility like others. Always trust yourself and get a second opinion,’ she urged.
