Help us fight cancer
Relay For Life began in the USA when in 1985 Dr Gordy Klatt raised over $27,000 for his local cancer charity by running around an oval for 24 hours. Since then, thousands of events take place across the globe every year.
Being an illusionist, my whole adult life seems to be a secret. I keep my life and my work extremely private, some say my life is THE DARKNESS. However we all know someone who has been touched and or lost a battle to cancer.
I myself have lost a family member to cancer, I have friends all over the world who have someone in their lives fighting cancer, but the one that had really touched my life was a little girl named Hannah.
Through my involvement of representing David Copperfield's Project Magic, I had the great pleasure of meeting Hannah at a children's hospital a few years ago. Hannah had seen one of my shows at the Children's Hospital. During my visits at the hospital teaching the cancer patients David Copperfield's Project Magic I got to know Hannah quite well. Having been blessed to know this special girl for about 2 years, Hannah unfortunately did loose her battle to cancer weeks before Christmas 2012.
The last time I ever got to see Hannah was on the 6th of November 2012 exactly one year ago today. This little girl had touched my life in such a way that she inspired me to create a special illusion dedicated to her that I now close my theater shows with. Hannah was a child who lost her battle to cancer at the age of 9. To this day I have a tear every time I think of her
The Hills Relay for Life is a community event to raise funds and awareness about cancer. Every year throughout the world the event honors those whose lives have been touched by cancer,. We celebrate those who survived cancer, we remember those lost to cancer, we make a change to fight cancer.
Even though "The Darkness" that will be taking place on the 23rd of November is a personal challenge for me, "The Darkness" can also be a personal challenge to someone who is currently fighting cancer. Join us on the 23rd of November at 9:30am Showground Oval Castle Hill to not only see my darkness but to also help raise awareness and research funds for those fighting THE DARKNESS.
