Dave's Year Without Alcohol


Share this page

I’ve taken a stand against blood cancer.

IT'S BACK !!  After the success to my alcohol free 2014, I'm giving up the booze again.

This time I'm aiming at zero alcohol in 2021 to help Leukaemia Foundation achieve its vision of zero lives lost to blood cancer by 2035.

I am fundraising to help the 47 Australians who will know that they have blood cancer by the end of today — and for the 47 families who will face the same devastating news tomorrow. 

I have created this page to raise vital funds to help provide the special care for those in need right now — and for the brightest researchers who continue to uncover faster diagnoses and better treatments to save lives.  It also supports The National Strategic Action Plan for Blood Cancer that sets out the priority areas, objectives and actions for addressing the challenges of blood cancer to achieve the aim of zero lives lost to blood cancer by 2035

Please show me your support by donating to my fundraising campaign.
