Leo the Legend

Simo got the news this week that no parent should ever have to hear... 

Your kid has cancer. 

Leo is 13 years old and has just been been diagnosed with Hodgkins Lymphoma.  No one Leo's age should have to go on this journey.   

Leo, we are sending love your way and are pulling for you buddy. You are a legend, you are going to smash this!

Simo, as parents we can only imagine the overwhelming anxiety, fear and pressure that comes with this.  Stay strong brother.  We are here for you!
Adding a layer of complexity to this is that Leo is in Brisbane and Simo is in Adelaide.  Travelling back and forth to Brisbane regularly is going to be hugely expensive and Simo has enough on his plate to worry about.  

He should just have to worry about being a Dad.

So we thought we would start this Go Fund Me page to see if we cant help out with some of the costs.

Simo gives a lot of himself and rarely asks for anything in return.  In this kind of scenario, surrounded by people who love you, you should never have to.
