Carrie's Beanies 4 Brain Cancer

In 2015 Carrie Bickmore OAM won the Gold Logie award which she dedicated to her late husband Greg Lange, who passed away following a 10-year battle with brain cancer.

Carrie went on to form Carrie’s Beanies 4 Brain Cancer Foundation. CB4BC has since raised more than $22 million for this vital research. The CB4BC Foundation’s aim is to ensure as much money as possible gets into the hands of incredible researchers working to find a cure for this horrible disease.

Thanks to the generosity of every person who has bought a beanie, held a fundraiser or donated. You have made this possible.

Hugo's Story

Brooke & Ollie are passionate about changing the future for kids just like Hugo.

They’re committed to help raise awareness and vital funding for paediatric brain cancer research.

They’re raising funds to support a PhD Scholarship in Hugo’s name, awarded to a young brilliant mind dedicated to research in paediatric brain cancer.  To help develop new treatment options for kids with brain cancer.

This could be the piece of the puzzle that creates game-changing results and improves outcomes for kids with brain cancer.

We want to make sure that every Australian child diagnosed with brain cancer has access to better treatments and clinical trials than there are currently, to be given real hope for a positive outcome.

We need your help to do that.

Lachie's Story

Lachie Stephenson lost his battle with a Diffuse Midline Glioma on Saturday 1st January 2022. His battle only lasted 7 months. He fought hard but it was just too big to win. He endured surgery, radiation and a clinical trial.

This was the same treatment used for this type of tumour in the 1960’s; there have been no medical advances in more than 60 years.

Lach was a perfectly healthy and fit 20yo who was playing footy and basketball one week and debilitated the next. It took Lach’s balance, coordination, vision, speech, the ability to swallow and then breathe. We need to raise funds and awareness.

If this can happen to Lach, no one is safe!

Please help so that parents in the future do not have to endure our unimaginable pain.

Max’s Cast for a Cure

Max absolutely loved fishing and we wanted to start something in his honour so our beautiful courageous boy would never be forgotten with also the goal of raising money for Brain Cancer Research and to help NT families going through the same.

We started Max’s Cast for a Cure Fishing Competition in Darwin which we have run for 2 years. We are pleased to donate this year 40k to the Brain Cancer Centre in Max’s honour to Misty Jenkins lab with a focus on Ependymoma.

Max was the most beautiful son, big brother with the kindest most gentle soul. He radiated love and happiness. He never once complained after all the things he went through – always had a smile on his face and was dancing until the day he passed away.
