Benny Wills Gala Dinner 2018
The seventh annual Benny Wills Gala Dinner will take place on Saturday 15 September 2018 at the Canberra Southern Cross Club, Woden.
Welcome to the Benny Wills Brain Tumour Research Program
The program commenced in late 2010, following the success of our inaugural fundraising event and is run through the Sydney Children's Hospital Foundation.
The Benny Wills Brain Tumour Research Program was established in memory of our beautiful son Benny, who lost his twelve month battle with Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma (DIPG) on Friday 11 September 2009.
When Benny was diagnosed with DIPG, we struggled to comprehend the fact that this disease was terminal at diagnosis and that was nothing that anyone could do to change this. It is unacceptable that there have been no significant improvements to treatment in over 30 years and that to date there has been limited funding to enable meaningful research to take place. With your support and the incredible dedication and work of Dr Ziegler and the team, we are working hard to change this.
Losing a child is something no parent should ever have to experience and our motivation in raising funds to support this program was and continues to be the hope that we can change the outcome for other children diagnosed with DIPG and spare their families from walking this path.
