I’ve taken a stand against blood cancer.
This year my grandfather died from a blood cancer. He had acute myeloid leukemia. Thanks to the work of researchers and many doctors, we got to spend a lot more time with him before he passed than we would have been able to even a few years ago. We got lots of help along the way.
Before he passed, he liked to joke with us that he was a cybernetic vampire, because he had permanent ports in him and needed lots of blood transfusions. In Pa Geoff's memory, I am holding the first 'Nightmare on Rapanea St' Halloween fundraiser. There will be lots of scary Halloween displays - please come along, enjoy the frights (including a vampire in honour of Pa Geoff), and donate to a great cause!
Today, more than 50 Australians will be told that they have blood cancer and tomorrow - another 50 families will be devastated by the same news.
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.
