As a father of 6 and with a very soft heart for children, it is no news to you that I will jump on any opportunity to somehow help make children happy in life and by any means possible. I believe that it is beyond a corporate responsibility, but a human responsibility to do all I can in this life to contribute and help make this world a better place for our future generation, even if my path is submerged in an ice bath, a bald head or in a snake pit. I DARE TO CURE CANCER.
I am an avid supporter of Children’s Cancer Institute, a globally leading medical research institute in Australia wholly dedicated to childhood cancer. This year more than 950 families in Australia will hear the words ‘your child has cancer’ and the sad reality is that cancer still kills more kids in Australia than any other disease, and many victims are little children.
Of the kids who do survive, 70% have life-long side effects from their treatment, some as serious as infertility, heart problems and even secondary cancers. I could not imagine a day where I would ever want to receive such news, but there are many families out there receiving this news and their lives are being shattered with the unknowns of Cancer.
I can’t make miracles happen, but I can use my influence to rally and raise funds so that more can be put into medical research so that one day soon what now seems impossible and unbearable will no longer be. I have agreed to step out of my comfort zone on the 6th September 2019 and take on a dare challenge at Children’s Cancer Institute’s CEO Dare to Cure. I’ll be taking on the Athlete’s Ice Bath as part of Team Kane.
Kane is an 8 year old bundle of energy but has been in hospital for most of his life. Diagnosed with leukemia when he was three years of age, he underwent two grueling years of treatment. His journey is real, it’s hard and I dare say the road ahead is long but every ounce of time, money and energy that we can direct at him will count !
