The TLR Foundation is so proud we achieved our first goal and raised $300,000 to fund the Trace Richey Patient Room in the new state of the art Haematology and Bone Marrow Transplant ward in Sydney's St Vincent's Hospital. Thanks to some dedicated and fearless fundraisers and some seriously wonderful donors we are already making a difference to the lives of patients being treated for blood cancers and bone marrow disorders. But funding the room for the patients was only the start and we now have our eyes set on helping the nurses who care for them.
Our new goal is to raise $160,000 to establish the Trace Richey Nursing Scholarship and give back to the nurses who chose to work in this field. The scholarship will enable one nurse each year to study for a Master in Cancer & Haematology taught at the University of Sydney.
To continue our history of crazy fundraising activities, we will be organising a Head Shave "SHAVE IT OFF" on Sunday 7 April 2019, marking exactly 4 years since Trace took his last breath. For most people going through chemo, losing their hair isn't a choice, but for us it is.
Please join us or support this bunch of truly brave people willing to SHAVE IT OFF to help us raise some serious cash.
