My Message

On the evening of Saturday 10 October, I am taking part in Light the Night because blood cancer has touched my life.

On April 6th of this year, I lost my best friend, my dad, to Acute Myeloid Leukaemia. Dad never gave up. He always said he was going to “kick this thing in the butt”, and he tried so hard up until his last breath. I miss him terribly every single day but I know he is at peace and no longer in pain.

Just 6 days after Light the Night 2020, on October 16th, we will be experiencing his first birthday since his passing. As his birthday present this year, I am hoping to raise some much needed funds for the Leukaemia Foundation so they can continue to search for a cure and maybe one day no one will have to experience losing a parent to blood cancer.

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.

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.
