    ...which really sucks for them. Especially since he already has Downs Syndrome. My first world problems are pretty laughable when I compare them. So after helping them out personally a little before I thought I would embrace the crowdfunding age and put this into cyberspace.

    Anyone feels like giving I can vouch this a (formerly south coast but now Sydney) family hurting bad.

    Also please share on your respective facebook pages etc I would love to see this family blown away by Aussie love.

    PS Sim I hope this is ok as it is not a registered charity, if not I apologise, please feel free to remove. The family is real you can go visit them at Randwick Children's if you like.

    Done and shared on my facebook page. You're a good friend Matt.
    I know it's financially tough because my dad was a victim of this disease.

    This is one of the main reasons why I want to be successful and build wealth through property, so I can donate and try and make a difference with these poor kids that have an illness.

    I have had a few trips to Westmead children's hospital since my son was born and it is so sad to see so many sick kids who won't get a chance to live a proper life.

    Thank god that my son is well and healthy now.

    All the best for your friends Matt. Your a good man.

    You're a good dude Matt - and you're right, most of our everyday stuggles are nothing in comparison to what this family is enduring. All the best with the fundraising.

    Thanks so much @larrylarry @Mumbai and everyone!

    I have a meeting with a local south coast Journo on Wednesday so it should get a run in the local paper the week after also. It just needs a little viral action and it could go far I think.

    I do not think it's about interest, but rather coverage. Most folks default to "Where to buy" threads without looking at the other sub-forums.

    Not sure if it is OK to mention this thread when you post elsewhere on PChat?

    If each PC member gave $10 the goal would be smashed! No pressure...

    Over 10% of the way there now!

    Chucked in a few bucks as it's a good cause and you're a good friend to them.

    Thanks @AndrewTDP ! Hoping to interview with local paper this week (it keeps getting delayed) so might get more local buzz too. Really appreciate everyone's sentiments.

    I am wanting to thank you all for your support with this family. I know many of you donated and several liked and shared the campaign. Little Jedi has now completed 5 rounds of Chemo and he is still here! Family doing well and full of confidence. Hoping for a clean set of tests in coming months (and yrs of course) thanks again all!
