I will be awesome

I'm fundraising for brain matters!

I’m doing Connor’s Run to support the brave and awesome kids fighting brain cancer 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.

My Updates

Sunday 10th Jul
In July 2020 our precious son Milo was diagnosed with a high-grade brain tumour. 

A furious whirlwind of surgery, weeks of daily radiotherapy and chemotherapy and lots of transfusions followed. 

Brain cancer is the number 1 disease killer of children. 80% of children diagnosed don’t survive 5 years from diagnosis. We don’t want to see any other families go through what we have and live with this reality. 

The RCD Foundation funded the program that enabled Milo’s tumour to be sent overseas for genetic testing, giving us more information for treatment should he relapse. 

To raise funds for the RCD Foundation, we will be doing a lap of Princes Park (Carlton, Melbourne) with Milo’s supporters on Saturday the 10th September. We will celebrate his 11th birthday and raise money for this incredibly important cause. If you want to join Milo’s army and do the lap with us, sign up to Connor’s Run and join our team. When you register, you need to select "Your Way Any Day - All of September". We will send you the details of our walk. 

I’d love it if you’d consider making a donation on my page and be part of making brains matter, together we can change the odds for young kids like Milo. 

Thank you for your support
