Trivia fundraiser @Thirsty Chiefs for rare Cancers
Food trucks, great beer, live music and games of trivia
Local mother Kate McKenzie suffers are genetic disorder called familial adenomatous polyposis, Gardner's and Turcot syndrome causing rapid growth in faulty cells which leads to rare cancers, tumours, cysts, and polyps.
Her condition requires expensive ongoing medical treatment by multiple practitioners, both public and private for a rare disorder Kates latest prognosis requires urgent treatment to shrink multiple Aggressive fibromatosis tumours, an intermediate cancer. Unfortunately, Kate's current treatment plan isn't covered by the Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme despite a nationwide petition of over 31,000 signatures in support.
That's where we, as a community, come in. To help rare cancer sufferers like Kate, the good people at Thirsty Chiefs Brewery North Lakes are hosting a fund raiser with all proceeds going directly toward the Rare Cancers Australia supporting Kate McKenzie patient campaign.
The fundraiser is to be held on the 18th of May, from 6pm At Thirsty Chiefs 4/4 Wills Street, North Lakes. There will be food trucks, live music and games of trivia.
