My Story

I am taking part in Blackmores Sydney Running Festival 2018 to raise much needed funds for Cure Brain Cancer Foundation. Their work is really important to me, here is my sons brain cancer story. In January this year we had a family discussion about his ongoing headaches and nausea, thankfully Nick went to his GP and later that day was admitted to hospital for immediate surgery. Nick underwent surgery to remove a rare life threatening brain tumour. That's a day as a parent I will never forget. Our son has made an amazing recovery and has become an ambassador for the Cure Brain Cancer Foundation. As a team thought this journey we will run together. You can help too, by donating to my page. Any amount you can give makes a difference! Just $30 will help educate 6 people on early detection, which is important and change a life like my son. You can also support me by encouraging others to get involved, too. Please email the link to my page to your friends and family, or share it on social media. Thank you for your generosity and support -- it means a lot to me.

About my team: Moonbase and Friends

Please support Moonbase and Friends as we run the Blackmores Sydney Running Festival to raise funds and awareness for a charity very close to our hearts, Cure Brain Cancer Foundation. In January this year, Moonbase aka Nick was diagnosed with a rare, life-threatening brain tumour in his cerebellum. One emergency brain surgery, many stitches, metal plating and a lot of recovery time later, we're proud to say that Moonbase is now back in action and fully recovered. Around 1700 people are diagnosed with brain cancer in Australia annually and approximately 1200 die from the disease every year. Please support the team by making a donation to contribute to Cure Brain Cancer Foundation's important work for brain cancer research, advocacy and awareness. Every dollar counts! Thanks in advance.
