Casey and her family moved into Childhood Cancer Support’s Herston units on Christmas Eve 2009. Her family stayed with CCS for 8 months while her youngest son, Logan, received treatment at the RCH. On return to Calen (Mackay) Casey was approached to help run the Mackay Raft Race, which she has now been doing since and has collectively helped raise over $100,000.
Casey is the P&C president of her local school where she works as a breakfast club converter and bus driver.
Moving to a position on the board has always been a long-term goal of Casey’s. She is a member of the Family Support sub-committee and is a huge advocate for the siblings of kids with cancer.
Her family is the most important thing to her and they just celebrated Logan’s 6-year cancer free in 2016.
‘It takes a whole family to heal cancer!’
