Shannon and Christie-Lee’s agonising journey was the start of something amazing. After their baby boy was diagnosed with a brain tumour in January 2012, the family made an outstanding commitment to ensuring other children would not suffer as little Ethan did.
With the Telethon Kids Institute, Shannon and Christie-Lee have established the Ethan Davies Scholarship for Brain Cancer Research which will speed the discovery of a cure and better treatment for children with brain tumours.
The Telethon Kids Institute has a dedicated cancer research group and a world-class brain tumour research team who are working hard to find answers.
The generosity of Shannon and Christie-Lee, and their family and friends – together with ongoing community support – will make a difference to generations of children.
