Our goal is to raise the awareness of Neuroblastoma and raise money for vital research to find a cure.
Jai went to Flagstaff Hill Primary School and played in the Flaggy Falcons U10 side with our kids. He loved spending time with his mates, always with his cheeky sense of humour and smile. Jai enjoyed playing basketball, footy and cricket. He was the go to guy for any sporting stats, rivaling the great McAvaney. He was passionate about his mighty Geelong Cats and his hero, Corey Enright.
Jai was a fighter and battled neuroblastoma for 5 and a half years. He lost his battle on the 5th of March 2015 just before his 10th birthday. The values Jai lived his life by “fight hard, never give up and make the most of every moment" are an inspiration to us all.
Jai never let neuroblastoma stop him doing the things he loved. He made sure he LIVED with Cancer.
Since 2014 Jai has motivated his friends, family and the local community to raise over $80,000 for The Kids Cancer Project to fund vital research to find a cure for childhood cancer. We have formed JAI’S FALCONS and intend to continue Jai's legacy. “Never Give Up”
• Neuroblastoma is the most common solid tumour and the leading cause of cancer deaths in children under 5.
• A child who relapses has less than a 20% chance of surviving
• Children do not get the same types of cancers as adults. There is no known cause and no prevention, so research matters
• The Kids’ Cancer Project is the #1 not for profit funder of childhood cancer research in Australia.
