Morning tea for Max

Royal Tea Member

Hosting my 1st year

In honour of my Husband

Support my Biggest Morning Tea

Donate online to help me reach my fundraising goal! Together, we can help Cancer Council raise much needed funds that go towards vital cancer research, support services, prevention programs, and advocacy.

My husband, Max has been diagnosed with a Diffuse Midline Glioma in his brain stem which is a terminal stage 4 cancer. Research is so important to help people like Max in the future and hopefully we can do our bit!


Since starting fundraising, my beautiful Max passed away on the 30.04.2022. This means so much more now than I ever thought it would. Please donate 


So far this year I've helped provide:

8382

Kids with a SunSmart education

206

Calls to trained cancer professionals on 13 11 20

111

Days of a PhD student's world-class research

I’m so sorry for your loss, it is beyond tragic. Max was a very special and beautiful human. It is wonderful to see this fundraiser, and hopefully it will lead to big breakthroughs in treatment and improving quality of life for those with brain cancer. Much love to you all.

I lost my mum to brain cancer - cruel and unfair. My heart is with you. Here’s hoping that research can help for future loved ones not to suffer such an awful death and their families not be left behind wondering what more could we have done. Love and strength to you.💕
