Georgia Shares Her Story with St Mary’s Anglican Girls’ School

On 5 April our Ambassador, Georgia Lowry, was invited to speak to a group of roughly 180 Years 7 to 12 students from St Mary’s Anglican Girls’ School. The theme for the term was ‘Gratitude’ and Georgia took the opportunity to share her story and her journey as ambassador of the Children’s Leukaemia & Cancer Research Foundation (Inc.).

Georgia was invited to speak by teacher, Mrs Louise Manson, who is a friend of Georgia and her mother, Ann-Marie Lowry. The students and staff are likely to hold fundraising activities to raise funds for the CLCRF during the term.

The response from the students and staff was outstanding as Mrs Manson sent a message to warmly thank Georgia.

“Thank you for coming to St Mary’s today and sharing your story. You spoke so well and have received numerous emails from both staff and students expressing how inspirational they found you and the beautiful manner you’ve conducted yourself.

“Never underestimate the positive impact you have on the lives of others. You had so many important messages for all of us.”

Well done Georgia for representing the CLCRF so well at St Mary’s Anglican Girls’ School. Also, thank you to St Mary’s Anglican School for raising funds for child cancer research.

Filming Dr Sébastien Malinge

On Thursday 12 April, Children’s Leukaemia & Cancer Research Foundation Inc. had the privilege of filming an interview with Dr Sébastien Malinge, Ursula Kees Fellow, at the Telethon Kids Institute who moved from France to Perth six months ago. He is one of the brilliant scientists working in the CLCRF lab at the Telethon Kids Institute.

Sébastien shared his passion for finding out why children with Down’s Syndrome have a higher incidence of leukaemia. He completed a post-doctoral fellowship in the US before moving to Paris to continue his research in 2012. Moving to Perth with his family, he is enjoying the peaceful lifestyle as compared to the hustle and bustle of Paris.

Dr Malinge believes that funding research into leukaemia is essential to help build a better future for all children suffering from leukaemia.

We will be editing the footage together and presenting a video of the interview very soon, so please stay tuned!

Ciao Italia from CLCRF!

Ciao Italia from CLCRF! Andrea Alexander, Executive Officer of CLCRF, was recently filmed in an interview to be televised soon on a popular Italian television program, La Prova del Cuoco, the Italian version of ‘Ready Steady Cook’. The show is televised on RAI, a national public broadcasting company of Italy and is hosted by popular journalist and presenter, Antonella Clerici.

This opportunity was organised by Antonio Argentieri from Italy who will also be featured on the show. Antonio is a well-known cake decorator in Italy and Foundation friend who has shown incredible support for the CLCRF.

The interview was filmed in Perth on 9 April and provided a chance for Andrea to talk about the Foundation as well as Antonio’s support and passion for funding child cancer research through the CLCRF.

On 17 August 2017, Antonio and the Cake Decorators Association organised the 19th Cake Decorating Seminar held in Rendezvous Hotel, Perth, where they raised money for the Foundation. Since that time, Antonio has continued to show wonderful support for the CLCRF.

The CLCRF thanks Antonio Argentieri, Antonella Clerici, and RAI for giving us the opportunity to highlight the need for funding the fight against cancer in children.

Growing Georgia: An Inspiring Story

Georgia Lowry’s website is now live at www.georgialowry.com.au and you can purchase her inspiring book, ‘Growing Georgia’ now. All sales go towards funding child cancer research with Children’s Leukaemia & Cancer Research Foundation (Inc.) (CLCRF).

‘Growing Georgia’ is an inspirational story of survival told in Georgia’s own words about her experiences as a ‘miracle baby’ who defied the odds and survived a rare form of Leukaemia in the early years of her life. Georgia talks about the incredible people who have helped her along the way on her journey.

The Australian government provides less than one percent of funding towards children’s cancer research. By purchasing ‘Growing Georgia’ you will be helping thousands more children have the chance to live longer.
