Tyson Templeton

Tyson Templeton

My reason for doing this Tyson Templeton 11yrs (12 in October). Diagnosed with T-Cell Acute Lymphoblastic Leukaemia in September 2016. Tyson was treated in Melbourne for 10 months with intensive chemo therapy, after 10 months he and mum were able to move home and travel each month to Melbourne for treatment. During his treatment Tyson suffered from liver dysfunction and jaundice, extreme nausea, vomiting & diarrhoea, Avascular Necrosis (bone death) four crushed vertebrae, mucositis and seizures. He had over 20 visits to theatre and to date 26 trips to emergency and admissions to hospital for infections. Tyson received well over 20 life saving blood & platelet transfusions. Thankfully he has responded well to the treatment and due to some changes in the treatment process was able to finish chemo therapy earlier than initially expected. Tyson is currently having monthly blood tests and checks to ensure he remains in remission. These checks will continue on for another four years.

My Story

22 Sep 2019

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.
