On March 15, 2019 our CMBM Facility Services Marketing and Tenders Manager, Meg O’Keeffe will shave her head to support the Leukemia Foundation – we are supporting her as she raises funds for this great charity.
Donations can be made here. Her goal is to raise $5,000!
Looking for a reason to donate? Read Jacob’s story below:
Remember being two years old? Not many of us do… but for most of us it was a carefree time as we explored the world with our families.
Unfortunately, leukemia is the most diagnosed childhood cancer.
When you donate, wonderful things happen. So thank you for your contributions! Every donation made means that kids like Jacob will find a home away from home with us, close to life-saving treatment.
Jacob and his family stayed in our Brisbane patient accommodation for eight months whilst he battled AML. He is now a happy kid, back home and in remission. He loves playing with his brothers and sisters and helping his mum cook.
Meet little Jacob.
He and his family live in Blackwater, rural Queensland which is a nine-hour drive from Brisbane. When Jacob was just two years old, he was diagnosed with acute myeloid leukemia (AML) – an aggressive form of blood cancer which needs to be treated urgently.
His story is one of hope and great courage in the face of a suddenly scary, uncertain future.
Donations can be made here.
