Dustin Perry and his family
Since Dustin Perry’s daughter, Chloe, was diagnosed with brain cancer in 2013, he has become an active campaigner to change outcomes for people living with brain cancer. This culminated in a number
of high profile media appearances in The Australian and more recently on
The Project, where Dustin called on Minister for Health, Greg Hunt, to increase
Federal Government focus and funding into brain cancer.
In recent months, Dustin has been focused on a cause much closer to home; his first fundraiser in Euroa which will raise funds for Cure Brain Cancer Foundation. The event is the culmination of work between Dustin, his friend Steven Jeffery – who himself has leukaemia - and Strathbogie Shire Council, who have thrown their support behind the event.
The special screening of hit
Pixar movie Cars 3 will take place at the Euroa Community Cinema at 7pm on Wednesday, 26 July. Tickets are available at the Council’s main foyer and St John’s School in Euroa and cost just $10 for children and $15 for adults. There will also be a raffle on the night with a number of fantastic prizes available donated by generous members of the local community.
My expectation is that within my lifetime people will look back at brain cancer, shocked that it used to kill people. I’m doing this because I want to make a difference. I’m inspired by the work of Cure Brain Cancer Foundation and I want to support them by raising money in any way I can.
Dustin will also be taking part
in Run Melbourne for Cure Brain Cancer Foundation on 30 July, and has already
raised in excess of $7,000. If you cannot make it to his cinema fundraiser, you
can donate to his Run Melbourne total below.
