A moving tribute was paid last night to a mother who bravely battled cancer until the end.
Natalie Murphy died on December 19 after her public battle with breast cancer captured hearts. The Mairangi Bay mother found a lump in her breast the day before her son, Jackson, was born two years ago and she was told it was cancer a few months later.
The 35-year-old and her husband of almost 10 years, Greg, had planned a New Year's Day ceremony to renew their vows.
Last night instead, at the Highlife NYE Experience in Matakana, a tribute was paid to Murphy, arranged by Adam Bennett.
