In 2006 PCRG raised $5,500 for the Queensland Cancer Fund during the PCRG Countdown to Gold Coast Campaign.
The charity that has been selected for the Hunt Lawyers/PCRG Gold Coast 2007 Campaign is Childhood Cancer Support (CCS). In 2006 PCRG member Elaine Gallagher (a cancer survivor) inspired PCRG members during the ''Dig deep for Elaine'' campaign.
Here are a few words from Susan (my Susan) which I am sure will provide you with the inspiration to become involved with the PCRG ''Dig deep for the Kids'' campaign.
''In 1992 when my 12 month old son, Matthew Patrick, was diagnosed with a rare liver tumour, our lives turned completely upside down & inside out. My husband & I quit our jobs & with our 4 year old son Ben, began a 12 month journey of dangerous operations, chemo, constant appointments, sleeping on hospital floors for 24-48 hours at a time, living with no income & facing new disappointments every day. At the same time we were trying our best to keep a ‘normal’ life for Ben who had just started his first year at kindergarten.
It was at this time that I was introduced to CLCS now known as CCS (Childhood Cancer Support). They offered us invaluable support, understanding & information. We lived 10 minutes from the hospital but our lives still became chaotic with no routine. It was at CCS that I met the families that CCS helped. Families facing the same life changing events but unlike us, they were many many kilometers from home & support. CCS offers families not only a place to ‘stay’ out of hospital grounds but offers invaluable support & creates a small community away from home that understands.
Our little “Matty Patty” passed away 11 years ago but sadly there continues to be many more little children diagnosed with cancer & many from areas outside of Brisbane. Necessary medical care takes these children away from their homes, schools & communities.
Funds raised during the Hunt Lawyers/PCRG Gold Coast 2007 Campaign will help CCS to continue providing the much needed accommodation and support for the families dealing with childhood cancer.''
