Cottesloe Magpies JFC

Kicking Goals For Brain Cancer

We're fundraising for brain matters!

Cottesloe Magpies are fundraising for kids with brain cancer, just like our friend Freddie. 'Fred' was diagnosed with a high grade medulloblastoma brain tumour. He had an 8 hour brain surgery the following day followed by 6 weeks intense radiation to the full brain and spine. Following this 7 months chemotherapy. 
 
Fred's family moved to Perth from Sydney for a clinical trial being held at PCH. We're fundraising for the Robert Connor Dawes Foundation- a charity based in Melbourne at the forefront for raising funds for paediatric brain cancer research. They also fund music therapy. Fred had a lovely musician assigned to him, and everyday he would sing and play songs on his guitar whilst Fred was being transported, measured up and prepared for daily radiotherapy- this calmed him down and helped him get through the gruelling treatment. The foundation also sent him a ukulele in the midst of treatment which he loved!
 
Unfortunately brain cancer the number one disease killer of kids.
 
Fred also has his own fundraising page setup here: https://give.rcdfoundation.org/fundraisers/FredMcGuiga/go-grey-in-may

13 bounces, 8 points but only 3 goals. That's on me and we'll do better next year. Great cause and thanks to Tiff and Charlie for organising, and to Charlie for explaining it to the kids.
