Why I am supporting Cure Cancer Australia

My Story

Cancer has killed many people in my, and my wife's life. Nancy, my wife, lost her husband to cancer after battling this disease for 10 years. I lost my father, immediately following an operation to remove part of his bowel. I also lost my partner, Lynn, to lung cancer nine years ago. Three years ago my brother, Colin (aged 57) and four years before that my other brother, Alan (aged 57) also passed away from this dreadful disease. I turn 57 in May and decided to run a FU Marathon, partly in memory of my brothers, partly to say that I am OK and I won't be joining them at 57 and partly to raise funds for a great cause. I am taking part in the Sri Chinmoy Marathon (42km) in Royal National Park to raise much needed funds for Cure Cancer Australia. Their work is really important, and I want to do what I can to help. But there is only so much I can do on my own. You can help too, by donating to my page. Any amount you can give makes a difference! 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. Together we can help Cure Cancer Australia create the world we want to see.

About my cause: Cure Cancer Australia

Cure Cancer Australia is dedicated to funding crucial cancer research from Australia’s brightest emerging minds. We believe early-career researchers who offer new ideas and challenging perspectives are the key to advancing the fight against ALL types of cancer.
The funding landscape for early-career researchers is extremely competitive. Cure Cancer Australia provides the vital early-career funding that our emerging research innovators so desperately need. Without investment in their potentially life-saving research, there won't be a future pipeline for Australian cancer research.
To date, Cure Cancer Australia has invested close to $30 million to support more than 300 scientists and provide close to 500 research grants. Many of our alumni are now amongst the leaders in cancer research both in Australia and around the world.
We won't cure cancer without research and we cannot cure cancer without you. Help us to make this the last generation to die from cancer.
