My Message

On the evening of Saturday 10 October, I am taking part in Light the Night because blood cancer has touched my life. As some of you would know, I have been having treatment this year for a form of leukaemia called multiple myeloma. Thanks to the excellent work of the specialists, doctors, nurses and administrative staff of the St Andrew’s Chemo Suite the last 5 months have delivered excellent results allowing me to now move to the final processes with the RAH over the next couple of months. I am incredibly positive about this next set of proven procedures and, of course, confident in the hands of the dedicated and brilliant staff at the RAH Haematology Clinical Unit. Now is my time to give back and I hope you can join me in donating to the Leukaemia Foundation’s excellent national fundraising event ‘Light the Night’ on 10th October 2020. I will be in the RAH on that night but I am running a virtual event (COVID, isolation and distance might make this the best option) called ‘Andy’s Buzz Cut Light the Night’. We are still working through the details of how the event will work but a high light will be a professionally produced video of my number 3 buzz cut, personally acknowledging the great work of the Leukaemia Foundation. With our current $4,000 target already achieved, which means we have picked up the first 6 badges, it’s time to target the Bright Star Badge. A donation of just $30 will keep the total moving along but feel free to choose from any the donation options, all of which secure much needed help for families leaving with leukaemia. 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.

I want all the hair off Drewster. You are PAFC born and bred - we don't do things by half. A number 3 doesn't cut it (see what I did there!)
