We can do it! (Georgia Maguire)

We're doing Connor’s Run to fund the science that will end paediatric brain cancer. The last twenty years has seen minimal progress for brain cancer diagnosis and treatments. Fundraising from Connor’s Run will fund the research to improve early detection, diagnosis and treatment options, including funding the AIM BRAIN Project and immunotherapy research. Brain cancer research is on the tipping point. We can all be part of making important breakthroughs happen. The Chocolate Monsters are going to smash the 18.8 kilometres to support the science and the patients including Georgia our very own chocolate monster, who has thankfully been in remission from a nasty brain cancer called Ependymoma for the last 18 months. At just 7 years of age, Georgia has had more hospital visits, invasive tests, general anaesthetics and needles than most of us will have in a lifetime. She has had 3 major brain surgeries, chemotherapy and radiation – all to fight this life-threatening disease. For Georgia, for all the kids out there currently battling brain tumours and for those who couldn’t wait for research to progress any longer, we’re doing this because we know we can find a way to make brain tumours go the way of the dinosaurs. We're in it to have a great time with friends while supporting a great cause. But we need your help to get serious about the fun. We’d love your support to make a donation to our page and be a part of making brains matter.
