My Story

6 Oct 2019

Most will know my story involving childhood cancer. Just 1 month after my eldest 3rd birthday, we got the news that he had Leukaemia. Thankfully, Jayden's story was a successful 1, responding well to all treatment, being cancer free now for 12 years.

Unfortunately not everyone's journey goes to plan, with cancer being 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.
