I’ve taken a stand against blood cancer.
On November 8th 2020, I lost my Mum to complications from her battle with Acute Myeloid Leukaemia. Every day hurts, and I need to do something to help other families affected by Leukaemia.
For the last few years, I have been intrigued by 'The Goldfields Track', a 210km track that runs from Mount Buninyong near Ballarat, to my home town of Bendigo. The main reason for not attempting it yet is that I didn't really have a 'Why'. Now I have.
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 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.
There is a lot of planning to take place, but fundraising can start immediately.
My initial plan is to start the walk at Mount Buninyong in early September 2021, and finish 4-6 days later in Bendigo.
You can follow my planning, fundraising, training, etc on my facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/gerrisjourney
