I'm Riding For

Michael Jones

Michael was the first young man (about 13) I looked after in palliative care at Toowoomba Base Hospital in 1981, He taught me so much about bravely facing the end as he died of his brain tumour, and I still remember the look of peace he had when his struggle was over, and think often of his parents and surviving siblings.

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.
