For my courageous Dad.
I am doing this for my Dad.
My Dad and I would walk together everyday with our dog in tow before he was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukaemia back in January 2021.
My Dad, Sheldon, passed away on the 15th of June 2022 after an 18 month courageous fight against this insidious disease. He was 51.
Up until the 15th of October (a 5 month fundraiser), I will be walking 1,200KM within the 24 weeks. Approximately 50KM a week.
I 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 I 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.
Please show me and the 53 Australians diagnosed everyday your support by donating to my fundraising campaign.
This is 'Sheldon's Walk'.
