Unfortunate medical condition that needs ongoing treatment

Main image

Rob and Michelle are a wonderful family and friends to many. Rob recently was diagnosed with a terrible medical condition, which has forced him to quit work, his wife Michelle has also had to go on indefinite leave from her job to be able to care for her loving husband.

They have a gorgeous little girl, who needs her daddy to get the medical care that is required to help beat this diagnosis.

There is constant ongoing medical expenses plus the day to day living costs. Friends and family have been fundraising to help the family and with your kind donations this can be better achieved and can relieve the extra stress from this awesome young family.

Remember, any donation will help, and it certainly adds up. But what it adds up to the most is:

This family is loved and blessed by all - and you are one of those who are blessing them :)

Thank You xx

Chris Dawson's involvement (page creator)

Rob is a close friend to a lot within Central Browns football club, his work, and the community. I/We all want to help towards this tough time for Rob and his family. Anyone who knows Rob knows he is a down to earth caring guy who would do anything to help out anyone in need. Now it is our turn to return the favour.

Use of funds

This will go towards helping pay for expenses not covered by the Public health system where neither are able to work at present. Funds raised will go towards living costs, transport expenses, accomodation costs, and general unforeseen expenses that arise.

Update Feb 2019  4 February 2019

Posted by: Chris Dawson

It's been 1 year since Rob was diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma. In the last 12 months Rob has battled through kidney failure, crushed vertebrae, radiation, 6 rounds of chemotherapy, stem cell harvesting and two stem cell transplants. Not once through all of this has he complained or stopped putting others first. He is finally in remission and able to enjoy time with his daughter which is an amazing achievement. The fight doesn't stop there, he has a further 3 rounds of chemotherapy and ongoing maintenance drugs to try and extend the remission period for as long as possible given the aggressive nature of his cancer. Unfortunately, the maintenance treatment that provides the best chance is not funded in his case and costs upwards of $20,000 - $25,000.
