This month has been huge! The coming months are set to be much the same. Some of my brain buddies, my family and I have decided we will either colour or hair purple or shave our heads to raise funds for Cure for Life Foundation. In the last few weeks Charlie Teo has been fairly prominent in the news having announced his 10 year global plan to cure brain cancer. Of course this is a fantastic step forward int the world of brain tumour research. I found it interesting that we formed an international team to raise funds for Cure for Life and Charlie announced his global plan shortly after.
My 5 year plan is to kick this prep course over and have achieved my Bachelor of Biomedical Science. The prerequisites are English and Pure Maths, suggested chemistry, biology or physics. I'm doing well in Biology so that is a good start. I may not do chemistry next year after all. It will give me a better chance of keeping on top of the pure maths.
Back to Cure for life for a moment. On Friday it was announced that Cure for Life will be the charity for the 2013 Color run in Sydney. I played some small part in this by emailing Cure for Life and suggesting they put in a bid and provided them the contact details. I was moved to tears that they rang me first to tell me that they had been given the place of charity for the color run. I really cannot explain just how important this charity is and what amazing people are in there hands on running it and doing all the things that need doing to keep it going.
Cure For Life Foundation logo is a Paper Crane. Paper cranes are traditional Japanese symbols of peace, good luck, and good health.
I am making a purple (through to blue) paper crane for each $10 amount donated, a silver for every $100 amount reached and a gold for each $1000 amount reached for the team! Each crane will have the name of the donor on it to help share that peace, good luck, and good health around. When we reach our $10000 team goal we'll have 1110 paper cranes.
If you'd like to help by donating please go to https://give.everydayhero.com/au/cc-survivors
If you'd like to help by putting flyers up or having one around at work etc you can find some here
Please don't put them anywhere you do not have permission to, we don;t want you to get into trouble..
I'll be away for about a week but don't worry I'll be taking crane paper with me :)
