Hi All, as many of you know, our beautiful Georgia has had her own brush with cancer. Georgia is doing well because of the tireless efforts of institutions like the CCI, and so I am doing what I can to help them out. Please help me as I take on a challenge for the CCI.
This year more than 950 families will hear the words 'your child has cancer.' You may not know that cancer still kills more kids in Australia than any other disease. Children's Cancer Institute is the only medical research institute in Australia wholly dedicated to childhood cancer. That's why this year I have agreed to step out of my comfort zone and help raise funds so we can find a cure in honour of these brave kids who face fear every single day during their treatment. $2,600 will fund the development of life-saving minimal residual disease tests to detect one child’s risk of relapse from leukaemia.
