As fundraising kicks off around town for various causes, it is important to remember how it has helped our friends and the community in the past. 

At just three weeks of age Northam boy Darcy Dunkerton was diagnosed with Erythroleukemia, a rare blood cancer. 

Due to medical advances from breakthrough cancer research and a collaboration of world class doctors, Darcy is now living a wonderful life with his family in Northam.

Darcy’s Mother Christine Dunkerton is an active fundraiser and is currently out and about raising money for Relay for Life and the Biggest Morning Tea. 

“Unfortunately, everyone is touched by cancer, but the more money we raise, the closer we get to finding a cure,” she said. “It all adds up.” Christine will be working on the day of the Biggest Morning Tea at Purslowe Tinetti Funerals on May 25. 

The business will be holding a wine and cheese silent auction evening this Friday, May 19 from 5.30-7.30pm.

All money raised from both events will go to the Cancer Council WA.
