For those who don’t know, Easton Shield is going to be a platform to raise awareness and funds for the Leukaemia Foundation. The VQA is excited to release their official Leukaemia Foundation fundraising page. We are aiming to raise $1,000 over the next fourteen rounds of the tournament. The page can be found here.
When talking, reading, or hearing about severe illness, many of us will comment “I can’t imagine what it would be like if this happened to be, or one of my loved ones.” For some, this is their reality, but we can help. The Leukaemia Foundation provides personalised and practical support for patients and families living with: Leukaemias, Lymphomas, Myeloma, Myelodisplastic Syndromes (MDS), Myeloproliferative Disorders (PRV, ET, MF), Waldenstroms, Amyloidosis, and Aplastic Anaemia. This support is provided by the extensive team of highly trained Support Services staff who are there to help through every step of the journey. All services are provided free of charge to patients and families and are available in metropolitan, regional, and rural areas across Australia. More information about the Leukaemia Foundation can be found here.
So please give generously to this worthy cause, in honour of Nic Easton, who was strong, witty, and an inspiration to many. You can read more about Nic’s journey through his Twitter account @cancertweetment
