In March 2017, 5-year-old Zoe Stanley was diagnosed with a rare and incurable giant cell glioblastoma multiforme tumour. Zoe was an incredible and happy little girl – artistic, brave and obsessed with everything unicorns, butterflies and rainbows. After learning of Connor’s Run during a treatment at Peter Mac, Zoe’s family immediately formed the team ‘United Unicorns for Zoe’. The Stanley family and their friends rallied their local Geelong community to raise more than $50,000 for Connor’s Run and brain matters. Unfortunately, Zoe was too unwell to attend the day, and in December 2017, just nine months after diagnosis, Zoe lost her fight. Zoe’s mum Penny made a promise to her little girl she would do all she could to help others facing the same fight, we’re in awe of her strength and forever grateful for their support in changing the odds.
