Our Message

On the evening of Saturday 10 October, we are taking part in Light the Night because blood cancer has touched our life. In March 2019 Mitch was diagnosed with AML. At 28 years old, with a 1 and a 2 year old at home we felt like our whole world was coming down around us. After his first induction round of chemotherapy he made it into complete remission, things finally seemed to be looking a little brighter, 2 more rounds of chemo with a few complications it seemed like our world was finally going back to normal, mitch had gone back to work and we had finally started making plans for our future. 7 months after first being diagnosed our worst fears happened when the cancer came back and Mitch relapsed, after 2 induction rounds of chemotherapy he had still not made it into remission and we were on to more 'novel' treatment options. With this not working as we had hoped our only option was to go to transplant. In February this year mitch had a haplo bone marrow transplant, it was the hardest thing any of us have ever been through. After 6 weeks in hospital and multiple complications mitch was finally home. It was all worth it when we found out he made it into complete remission at the 100 day BMA. Leukaemia has impacted our lives in so many ways, we have been so lucky to have so much support from our family and friends. Being apart of light the night is so important to us to pay forward what everyone has done for us and hopefully in someway we can help someone else with the funds raised and by sharing our story. 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 us reach our goal and sponsor us to Light the Night.
