Ken The Foo Fighter - My Hero

$25,144 of $30k goal

Raised by 932 people in 25 months
Ken Powell is a super hero & a walking miracle. He has taken life by the horns each and every day. Not even cancer can stop him finishing his bucket list.

Ken was diagnosed with melanoma cancer 14 years ago and battled along well with treatment and surgery. Life took a dramatic turn in June 2009 when the cancer was discovered so far progressed it was classified as stage 4 (terminal). Two major brain surgeries later, radiation and trial treatments his prognosis is still terminal but terminal can't take his determination away.

He is a walking (sometimes wheelchair rolling) miracle. With strength and determination and now your support he has a wish to make a big tick on his bucket list. You might be asking what is this bucket list item???... To meet The Foo Fighters in America along with supporting some other very important charities close to his heart. 

So help us get Ken to America in September where Dave is waiting with complimentry tickets and give Ken a FOO-ULTIMATE holiday.

Let's now get to $30k so that we give more to Melanoma Institute Australia so that they can continue their work towards improved treatments, & eventually a cure, for this nasty form of skin cancer and continue to provide sun safe education.

Hi all THANKYOU so much for all of your generous donations so far!!! We can believe the support its so overwhelming for Ken. We have just changed the goal to $30k because we thought it would be great to hand over a massive check to Melanoma Institute Australia, who have helped and supported Ken for over 9 years. We are thrilled to have funded the trip for Ken and now it's a chance to pay it forward and help research for melanoma which is vitally needed!
