LOVE FOR LACHIE FOUNDATION
3 Points Challenge & Ocean Swim Charity Partner
The Love for Lachie group was established in loving memory of Lachie Muldoon who, at age 10, after experiencing mild headaches, was devastatingly diagnosed with an aggressive form of brain cancer. Lachie endured two invasive brain surgeries and a round of chemotherapy, but within six months of diagnosis, brain cancer had taken the life of this kind, fun-loving and brave boy, leaving all who knew him shocked and devastated.
Paediatric brain cancer of this type is a devastating, aggressive and fast growing disease and is the number 1 killing disease of children in Australia. Research for children’s brain cancer has been grossly underfunded for many years, limiting the options for treatments and trials for kids in Australia, and leaving parents without hope.
Since the inception of the Love for Lachie Foundation in 2016, the group has raised more than $1 million for children’s brain cancer research, supporting the work of Professor Kerrie McDonald, CEO Cure Brain Cancer (formerly of UNSW Lowry Brain Cancer Research Centre) and Dr Nick Gottardo, Co-Head, Brain Tumour Research Telethon Kids Institute. Love for Lachie is an authorised fundraising partner of The Kids Cancer Project, Cure Brain Cancer and the Tour De Cure charities. Currently, the Foundation is working on an international collaborative immunotherapy trial amongst Australia, the USA, and Europe which will see Australian children receive unprecedented access to a world-leading clinical trial. The three-year budget of the trial will be $A1,000,000, with confirmed budgets, trial protocol and timelines to be released shortly.
