Train For Shane

I’ve taken a stand against blood cancer.

Everyone that has been with us for a while would know the Lumley's. Shane and his wife Lynne have been such a massive part of the community for years now, they are part of the family here and it wouldn't be the same without them. 

In 2022, the family was met with devastating news. Shane had been diagnosed with stage 2 MDS - Myelodysplastic Syndrome. At age 52, in August of 2022, Shane was given 9 months to live.  

Shane's only possible hope is a stem cell transplant, but it is proving difficult to find a suitable donor. He fights everyday to live long enough to get this life saving transplant.

We have created this page to raise vital funds to help provide the special care that is needed to get families through a blood cancer diagnosis as well as to help fund more game-changing research into this disease. 

The money we raise will help provide care for those in need right now — and it will back the brightest researchers to continue uncovering faster diagnoses and better treatments to save lives.
