Jack Norman

Jack Norman

I am cycling in memory of Jack Norman. Our friend Jack was 4 years old in 2012 when he was diagnosed with an ependymoma (a rare type of brain tumour). After 12 hours of surgery Jack spent his 5th birthday in hospital and in the following months had to learn to sit, stand, eat, walk and talk again. After many positive months of improvement, sadly, the tumour returned in 2013 and again in 2014. Jack bravely faced many months of therapy, he lost his hearing in one ear, and when the tumour attacked his optic nerve he lost his sight. He never lost his sense of humour, his gentle nature, his sharp intelligence or his will to fight. Sadly Jack lost the fight in October 2015. Through the incredible efforts of the medical researchers and medical staff Jack and his family gained a few extra precious years together. I hope that the funds I raise will allow other families a similar chance and eventually to save the lives of children fighting cancer. Your donation will help.

My Story

This October, I am taking part in the Great Cycle Challenge to fight kids' cancer!

Because right now, cancer is the largest single killer of children from disease in Australia – over 600 children are diagnosed with cancer every year and sadly, 3 die every week.

Kids should be living life, not fighting for it.

And so I am riding and raising funds to support the Children's Medical Research Institute to continue their work into the prevention, diagnosis, treatment and finding a cure for childhood cancer.

Please support my challenge by making a donation through my fundraising page to give these kids the brighter futures they deserve.

Together, we can save little lives.

Thanks for your support.
