My eight year old son Declan had been fighting an aggressive childhood cancer called Neuroblastoma since the age of four. Enduring Chemotherapy, Radiation, Surgery, Stem Cell Transplant and Immunotherapy.

Sadly in May this year he passed away at home with us and his brothers by his side. Another true superhero that has lost his life to childhood cancer.

In 2015 and 2016 Declan was put on a clinical trial in Sydney. This particular drug, DFMO, was funded by The Kids Cancer Project. Declan was extremely well while being on this trial, allowing us to have more quality time with him as a family. This was achieved purely because of research and moving forward with new treatment options.

I am determined more than ever now to help find a cure and better treatment options for all childhood cancers so that other children have a better chance of survival.

Starting on the 1st September over 10 days, myself, my wife Kim and a team of family members and friends will embark on a 600 km scooter ride. Travelling through rural Western Australia dressing up in superhero costumes along the way. We are embarking on this ride again in honour of Declan. Our aim is to raise as much awareness and funds as possible to help all children with childhood cancer, now and in the future.

Joining us this year again is Rhys, who sadly also lost his daughter Heidi to DIPG, one of the most deadly types of Brain Cancer.  There is no treatment and no child survives this.  Heidi sadly passed away 2 days before Declan. Yet another true superhero

100% of the funds raised will go to The Kids Cancer Project. This charity was chosen because of their dedication towards finding new treatments and research into ALL childhood cancers.

Kids Cancer Project

The Kids’ Cancer Project is an independent national charity dedicated to supporting childhood cancer research. Kids' cancer is different to adult cancer. Current treatments like radiation and chemotherapy are very harsh causing many kids to develop side-effects long after treatment has ended.

The Kids’ Cancer Project was founded in 1993 by Col Reynolds who decided to step up and do something to help. Now, thanks to community support, the charity has committed tens of millions of dollars to scientific research projects to help children with many types of cancer.

Science is making an impact, providing new treatment options and giving hope to the 950 children and young adolescents diagnosed each year.

If you believe science is the solution join us. By working together, we will make a difference to help kids with cancer.
