  1. Well done Carrie Bickmore, you are a fundraising legend. We lost our son to Brain Cancer many years ago, and at the time people didn’t know how deadly it is…they probably still don’t realise but Carrie is not only raising funds but also awareness.

    1. @simmo3, I’m terribly sorry for your loss. Three people who resided in my street lost their lives due to brain cancer. It is such an insidious disease, with 60% of people dying within two years of diagnosis. Brain cancer and neuroscience in general is heavily underfunded so awareness campaigns and fundraisers are needed more than ever.
