“It was the first time I have seen Anthony look defeated. You can only take so many hits without it eventually knocking you down physically and emotionally. When the social worker told us about Dreams2Live4, Anthony broke down in tears. It meant so much to him – the opportunity to forget about leukaemia, forget about treatment, forget about having a transplant match and forget to worry about whether he will see our kids grow up.
From that moment there was a definite change in him – he had something to really look forward to.” – Pene
Anthony and Pene are parents to six amazing children. They brought this blended family together when they married 3 years ago. But just 4 weeks after the wedding Anthony was diagnosed with cancer. Since then Anthony has fought a gruelling battle.
Anthony’s dream was to see his favourite team – Sydney FC play a game and take his beloved wife for a romantic dinner. Thanks to our wonderful sponsors PRP Diagnostic Imaging and Sydney FC, Anthony’s dream came true. And yes! Sydney FC won their game and Anthony cheered for their victory!
