Robert Laughlin and Sons Fundraiser

Hi there everyone!

In case you are not aware, Robert Laughlin has been battling bowel cancer since December last year, he has been out of action for over 6 months and unfortunately will be out of action for another 6 months at least, and we have been advised Robert may need a full time carer / nurse for some weeks once he finally arrives back home.

Robert is a single dad to his two boys - Tiger and Max who tragically lost their mother only 18 months ago. Robert unfortunately has been unable to receive income insurance due to previously battling Hodgkins Disease.

Roberts family and friends have banded together during this time, and have been looking after the boys whilst Robert is receiving the care he needs.
As per our facebook page, the Dimond Creek Football Club have so generously offered to put on a Fundraising event to get our friends, family and community around our family during this difficult time. 

However, if you are unable to attend this event, as requested by so many we have set up this Go Fund Me account for any contribution no matter how great or how small.

These funds will go towards relieving the financial stress that Robert is under, and will allow him to focus entirely on getting better. 

We thank you all so deeply from the bottom of our hearts, the show of support so far has been overwhelming.
