Recently, we announced the winner of our $15,000 raffle prize to be ticket no. 03127. We are now thrilled to be able to share the touching story of the man behind the ticket, Brian Jennings.
Brian is someone that knows the struggles of childhood cancer all too well, having lost his son Matthew to a rare form of Leukaemia almost 40 years ago. In the hopes of future generations having better childhood cancer treatments, Brian has very kindly decided to donate $5,000 of his raffle prize money back to CLCRF.
“It’s been 38 years since Matthew lost his struggle after suffering from Megakaryocytic Leukaemia and Myeloid Fibrosis, so the news of the raffle win came with mixed emotions.” Said Brian.
“The success of The Foundation in progressing the treatment of childhood cancers has been significant and Matthew’s mother, his brothers and myself are most thankful and support [CLCRF’s] work the best we can.”
The Foundation would like to acknowledge Brian as a very deserving winner and thank him for his huge act of generosity. His $5,000 will help us to continue important research into childhood cancer.
“On a lighter note, the last raffle I won was as an 8 year old, 66 years ago, and the prize was a clown shaped biscuit barrel. My luck has surely changed.” Said Brian.
Our next raffle is being drawn on 31 October! If you would like to purchase tickets, please ring our Raffle Hotline on 1300 139 651 or head to our raffle website.
