Curing Brain Cancers - Blackwood 8 fundraiser on the 23rd of October

Friday 16 October 2009

The Blackwood 8 fundraising event is coming up in a week and will be held at the Croydon Golf Club. In just two years and with a small handful of volunteers, the Blackwood 8 group has raised over $80,000 which has been donated to organisations looking to treat cancer. This year, the focus in on Brain Cancer's and world reknowned neurosurgeon, Dr Charlie Teo is a guest speaker. Tickets for the event can be obtained by accessing the Blackwood 8 website

With major auction prizes, silent auctions, raffles and a great night of entertainment with a live band, finger foods and drinks, Blackwood 8 are hoping to raise over $50,000 from this year's event, with all proceeds being donated to the Cure for Life Foundation.

To book tickets, go to the Blackwood 8 website

This year's event will also mark the official launch of Sally White's book 'Three Quotes from a Plumber' which details Sally's battle with a Brain tumour and how her sister urged her to get a second opinion with the words 'Sally you get three quotes from a plumber, why wouldn't you do the same when your life is on the line?'  Having already had one operation to remove her brain tumour, 'serindipity' worked in Sally's favour when Dr Charlie Teo was called in at late notice to speak at another event. With her sister's words ringing in her ears, and with her husband's advice to 'do whatever it takes to speak to Charlie', Sally asked Dr Teo if he would be willing to take a look at her case.

He did, and the book highlights Sally's journey and earlier history

New Australian Food Labeling Laws Finally Make it to Market
Wednesday 3 May 2017
Some of you may have noticed Federal Government advertising for the Food Labeling Laws. What few people will know is that the model being put out there is pretty much the EXACT model I proposed back in the year 2000. Which just goes to show that to predict the future, sometimes all you have to do is wait. Well not quite but
