My Message

In August 2019 I’ll be cycling 1600 km from Townsville to Brisbane as part of the Bottlemart Smiddy Challenge. That’s nine days in the saddle riding between 170 and 220km each day!.

Why am I taking on this challenge?

Last year I rode around Tasmania with this amazing bunch in honour of my good mate Tone who lost his battle but never stopped smiling. This year it's even more personal.

The following week after I returned from Tassie, an MRI detected a tumour in my thirteen year old daughter's pituitary gland at the front of her brain and hence started a long year in and out of the Brisbane Mater Hospital....SPOILER ALERT.... After two neuro surgeries Paris is doing just fine but let me tell you that there is nothing in the parenting handbook that prepares you to hear the terms 'brain tumour' and 'daughter' in the same sentence. It has been a testing year and the journey is ongoing with constant monitoring, blood tests, MRI’s and hormone replacement. Her condition is not life threatening but her ongoing treatment will be a challenge. This journey is one we couldn't have done without the support of so many friends or the long list of surgeons, specialists, nurses and staff at the Mater.

One thing that has become glaringly obvious is that WE NEED MORE RESEARCH! I can’t tell you how many times over the past year my wife Ailsa and I have heard the words “We don’t know”. It's not exactly what you need to hear from Queensland’s top surgeons and specialists when your daughter’s health is the topic. It’s certainly not because these guys are uneducated it’s just because there simply isn’t enough funding to do the necessary research around these rare cancers and conditions.

This is where we can help thousands of other patients like Paris desperate for answers. As part of my challenge I’m aiming to raise $5000 to support the work of Mater Research—Mater’s world-class research institute that is investing in some game-changing work into the causes, treatment and prevention of cancer.

All I need is 100 people to donate $50.00 each! That’s all. Last year a group of us organised a raffle to raise money so you got something in return in the way of a computer, a bike or a shed load of beer! Not this year…I just want $50 bloody dollars! I’m doing the k’s…you give me the cash… the amazing research team get the much needed funds to find answers…the surgeons get to say “I do know” and many people get to experience more birthdays!!
