I will be awesome
I will run for my big cousin Gideon!
In May 2018 my 8 year old cousin, Gideon, was diagnosed with a GBM brain tumour. Gideon’s treatment involved surgery, radiotherapy and targeted chemotherapy treatment. During this time, our family were privileged to spend extraordinary quality time with him. Gideon was a gorgeous, funny and gentle boy, devoted to his siblings and family. He loved going to school, loved all things cookie-monster related and entertained everyone with his quirky sense of humour and fantastic memory. In May 2019, almost 12 months after diagnosis, Gideon died at age 9. We miss him deeply.
I’m doing Connor’s Run to support the brave and awesome kids fighting brain cancer - the #1 disease killer of young people, and to fund the science that will one day end paediatric brain cancer.
Brain cancer research is on the tipping point. We can all be part of making important breakthroughs happen. My participation is something that I can do to support the science and in the meantime the patients. For all the people out there currently battling brain tumours and for those who couldn’t wait for research to progress any longer.
I’m doing this because I know we can find a way to make brain cancer go the way of the dinosaurs. Make a donation to my page and be part of making brains matter, together we can change the odds for young people.
