Help Sera & I raise funds for the deadly lung disease - Silicosis - which i was diagnosed with in late 2018 after years of working as a stonemason. There is currently no treatment or cure for this disease and we are trying to raise funds into research for a treatment for Silicosis, so that i and others who have been diagnosed have a chance of a long term future. Sera has been given an incredible opportunity to raise funds for a charity of her choice (she chose one close to her heart - to raise funds towards research for a treatment or cure for Silicosis). I’m lucky enough to be partaking in this fundraising journey with her.

Why am I fundraising and how can you help me?

Help me advance lifesaving research into silicosis.
Silicosis is a deadly lung disease, described as the worst industrial health crisis since asbestosis. It mainly affects tradespeople who inhale toxic silica dust while cutting products like engineered stone benchtops, bricks, tiles and concrete. The silica dust settles in their lungs and stops their lungs from working. Silicosis cannot be cured or treated, and it’s often fatal. Each year over 500,000 Australian workers are exposed to silica dust. It has been estimated that 5758 of these will develop a lung cancer over the course of their life as a result of that exposure. Please support me to advance urgent research into a treatment for silicosis, so young workers in the prime of their lives no longer face a death sentence.

Net proceeds raised throughout this project will be granted to The Common Good (The Prince Charles Hospital Foundation)  https://www.thecommongood.org.au/
