In memory of


26 Nov 1983 - 04 Feb 2001

cancer is happening right now and we need your help to find a cure, this is Kevin’s story. Kevin was diagnosed with cancer at the age of 2, and he received an operation to remove the cancer the same year. He underwent a gruelling six months of chemotherapy and radiotherapy, followed by many hospital visits. The treatment was a success, and Kevin carried on with his normal life to the best of his ability for the next 7 years. When Kevin was 9 years old he was unexpectedly struck with the news that the same cancer had returned, and started his chemotherapy again. This treatment was so strong and intense that it caused serious problems to his immune system, heart and lungs. Unfortunately on the 4th February 2001 Kevin took his final breath as his organs gave up on him and he was no longer able to fight the gruelling pain and suffering. We are proud of Kevin for everything he went through at such a young age. Together we are stronger - Kirsten’s quest for a cure ❤️
