A Celebration of Ricky Wood

I’ve taken a stand against blood cancer.

To celebrate the wonderful life of Ricky Wood, his family ask that donations be made to this foundation that helped Ricky make the most of his final years here with us.

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.

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 your support by donating to my fundraising campaign.
