The Longest Melanoma March

Story

Dear friends and family,

In 2008 I was diagnosed with melanoma. I had no idea how deadly melanoma could be. I was lucky my wife kept persisting that I get a mole on my left ankle checked, lucky I did because it was a melanoma 1.95mm deep and it spread to the lymph nodes in my left groin.  I was diagnosed stage 3 melanoma. It was life changing for myself and family. Im lucky to be alive, so now its time to give back to Melanoma Institute Australia who saved my life.

 

The Longest Melanoma March is a 29 day walk starting in Brisbane on March 5th, and finishing in Sydney April 2nd at the final Melanoma March in Barangaroo. Each day of the walk 6 different people have the chance to walk with me. 

 

If you have been affected by melanoma I invite you to come along and walk with me on one of the 29 days or I would love your support by way of a donation or sponsorship support.

 

Every little bit helps to reach my target. My goal is to raise $250,000, with every cent raised going towards a clinical trial so we can get a cure for a disease that causes too much devastation. I have personally lost almost 30 friends to melanoma and I know they will be with me every step of The Longest Melanoma March.
