“One in two Queenslanders will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime and I really want to help make a difference, so I have pledged to raise a minimum of $500.” Year 9 Student, Sam Blackwell said.
Funds raised will go towards clinical research, patient care and other initiatives so that Queenslanders with cancer will have access to the latest treatment options to enable the best possible health outcomes.
