My Story

On November 10th, Michael and Liv will be participating in the Colour Run Sydney. Although a fun event, Michael and Liv have other reasons for wanting hot pink colour thrown in their eyes. In January 2017, at the age of 47, Liv lost her mum to Glioblastoma, a rare form of Brain Cancer. Liv and her sister Anna, lost their best friend and are now determined to help find a cure to prevent other young people from losing their lives too early. In case you didn’t know, Brain cancer kills more children in Australia than any other disease. Therefore, it kills more people under the age of 40, than any other form of cancer. For that reason, Michael and Liv have chosen to run for the Mark Hughes Foundation. With your assistance, these much needed funds help to find a cure for brain cancer, create awareness and support brain cancer patients and their families. No matter how big or small your donation, you want to know that it is going to be used in the best way possible! Medical research is expensive but it saves lives. Funding medical research is how we can look to a future where brain cancer patients have much improved treatments and positive long term health outcomes and one day - a cure.
Your donation large or small helps in many ways:
• $50 - biobank blood collection tubes
• $150 - laboratory consumables for one week for a PHD student (gloves, dry ice, sharps containers, syringes, GHS labels, petri dishes, etc)
• $500 - one pipette - a vital laboratory tool for researchers
• $6000 - medical researchers can gather brain cancer cells for investigation for new treatments
• $20,000 - medical researchers can begin development of new drug therapies for brain cancer treatment
• $50,000 - medical researchers can develop new treatment and drug therapies ready for clinical trials in patients
• $100,000 funds a medical research team for 3 months to continue development

Thank You
