Chris Masnada

Chris Masnada

My older brother Chris was first diagnosed with an aggressive form of brain cancer at the age of 5. Chris underwent multiple surgeries and intense chemotherapy. As part of Chris' cancer journey he spent years going through various forms of therapy due to side effects of his surgeries, including learning to walk and talk again after being temporarily paralysed on one entire side of his body. After a challenging battle of a few years Chris was placed into remission and was able to live a somewhat normal life. Unfortunately in his teens Chris's brain cancer returned. Doctors and surgeons were hopeful that Chris would be able to defeat the cancer and make a full recovery. However, after a series of complications with surgeries he sadly lost his battle. Despite the challenges he faced and the impact it had on his life, Chris always had a positive outlook and never let anything bring him down. He was, and still is, my biggest inspiration. Miss you mate.

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.

Matt
