Wayne Bardwell ( Megabite)

Wayne Bardwell , aged 42 has been hit with one of life’s hardest battles. In March this year - after a 14 month period of multiple tests, Wayne received the devastating news that he has Motor Neurone Disease.

There is no cure for MND. Lifespan given is an average of 24 months. Wayne will be in a wheelchair with no ability to do anything for himself. The most cruel part of this disease is that it does not affect the mind. Wayne has to face the harsh reality that he will not be able to see his children grow up, and grow old with his family. Wayne and Cathryn immigrated to Australia 9 years ago leaving their family behind to start their lives here in God’s Country. Now this young family faces something nobody should endure. Especially with no family close by to support them with day to day things.

Many of you may have met Wayne (Megabite) - he is an avid fisherman who skippered Megabite, the second love of his life. He lived for his fishing and taking his family and friends out on the water.

Wayne unfortunately can no longer fish, as he cannot hold a rod in his hands. Knowing he has to sell Megabite is slowly eating away at him as its one of the many things he lived for,

Costs to get Wayne mobile so he can have some sort of normal life are rising - the wheelchair he needs is 29k alone, and that’s not even beginning to touch on things like modifying the house, and the full time care he will need down the track. Wayne and his family need our help.
Guys any money  we can raise to help Wayne Cathryn and their 2 boys out would mean so much to them.
Cheers Brett
