I'm Riding For

Alfie

Alfie died from Brain Cancer in June 2018. He went through 10+ brain operations, multiple infections and complications, 5 months of high-dose chemotherapy, 9 months of intensive hospitalisation, months of headaches and vomiting, seizures, the loss of his mother to the same disease and then finally when on more drugs than an adult could manage – 10 days without food or water. After all that, he still fought for his last breaths… His strength, dignity and courage throughout his battle was unfathomable.

My Story

9 Oct 2019

Thanks to such incredible support from my family, friends, colleagues and strangers last year, this October, I'm again taking part in the Great Cycle Challenge to fight kids' cancer.

My little nephew Alfie died from brain cancer in June 2018. In part, due to our inability to provide him with local, inexpensive, non-harmful and ultimately curative treatments. His adoring mother Sara also died from an unrelated form of brain cancer in January 2018. Their tragic story was covered in various media and can be found online.

Alfie's strength, dignity and courage throughout his battle was unfathomable...

Cancer is the largest single killer of children from disease in Australia. Funds will 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 by making a donation.

Thanks
