My Message

Thanks for visiting my fundraising page. On the evening of Saturday 10 October, I am taking part in Light the Night because blood cancer has touched my life. Light The Night is a symbolic event for those that have lost a loved one, are currently battling Leukaemia (or a blood related cancer) or those that are in remission, like myself. Ultimately, the lighting of lanterns (white, blue and yellow) symbolises the hope we share for a future free of blood cancer and the support of a community that understands the darkness a blood cancer brings to our lives. My aim this year is to raise $2,500. It costs around $500 a week to help a family with accomodation services for when their loved one has to be hospitalised. My experience was more fortunate because my family were close by, but for some thats not the case. Having your family by your side when you are diagnosed is something that I would like all patients to have. As of early September, I am over half way but I would appreciate your help to raise funds for the Leukaemia Foundation this year. Funds raised through this special event provide families facing blood cancer with the care needed to make it through every scary, uncertain moment that follows a diagnosis. 2020 has been a tough year but it could be a lot tougher for some.... Donations also transform fear into hope in miraculous, life-changing ways by furthering the work of brilliant research scientists. This research is saving lives right now as it continues to discover faster diagnostics and even better treatments for people with blood cancer. Please help me reach my goal and sponsor me to Light the Night. Everything over $2 is tax deductible.

I didn't know Michael, sorry. I am so glad you made it through the ordeal. Also, I have to say, you were never good at spelling. You were good at other things. All the best.
