Strides for a Cure

I’ve taken a stand against blood cancer.

If it wasn't for the Leukemia foundation, our mother and grandmother would not be with us today. Their overwhelming support made treatment possible earlier this year and, thanks to the Leukemia foundation and the generous donations of the Australian public to their charity, she is back home and in recovery. 

To show our gratitude for their support, my nephew and I are walking 100km of the great ocean road in January 2024 to raise money and awareness for this great cause. 

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 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.
