You may have heard of the heartbreaking story affecting a young family from Port Macquarie.
Only 3 months ago Bec Lancaster-Scully from Port Macquarie was a happy and healthy 36-year-old woman living on the beautiful Gold Coast with her husband Joel & two beautiful boys Will, 5 and Kit, 1.
Just before Christmas 2018, Bec suffered a series of migraines and doctors found 2 tumors.
At the end of January 2019 Bec underwent brain surgery to remove one of the tumors, the other cannot be removed due to it being on her brain stem.
She has since been diagnosed with Grade 4 - primary glioblastoma with a rhabdoid subtype AKA brain cancer. The average survival time is 12-18 months with only 25% of glioblastoma patients survive more than one year, and only 5% of patients survive more than five years.

What makes Bec’s story so incredibly sad and unique are the challenges her and Joel have faced over the past 6 years. Will was born in May 2013 with a heart condition that required heart surgery. He spent 7 weeks in hospital until he was strong enough to undergo the surgery. Then in February 2016 their little boy Jasper was born sleeping at 9 1/2 months. Bec and Joel welcomed Kit into the world in October 2017, born at 34 weeks which kept Bec and Kit in hospital for 6 weeks.
Just when they thought all their struggles were over, they’re now faced with this horrible uncertain future.
So, let's get around Bec & her family by raising much-needed funds!
