Shine bright like a Survivor

I’ve taken a stand against blood cancer.

Today, more than 53 Australians will be told that they have blood cancer and tomorrow - another 53 families will be devastated by the same news.

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 Leukaemia Foundation's mission means a lot to me and my family. 10 years ago, my father was diagnosed with Leukaemia, and I am one of the few lucky families that get to say that he is a survivor. As a way to give back to those who helped in his recovery, I have decided to become a volunteer for the foundation and support their mission.

With your contribution, it provides specialist support, fund leading-edge research and campaigns to make change for people with any time of blood cancer, not leukaemia alone. Visit our website for more information, support and ways to get involved.

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 your support by donating to my fundraising campaign.
