On the 28th September 2004 our friend and much loved work colleague David Willis lost his life to cancer. In memory of Dave we created our annual Crazy Dave wine sale where a portion of the proceeds each year are donated to a different cancer organisation, group or family in need. Over these 15 years, with your help, we have donated more than $30,000 to a diverse and varied group of people and organisations either raising funds for or who are directly affected by cancer.
Cancer touches the lives of so many people. It touched us directly when Dave was diagnosed and passed away in 2004. It touches us when it is diagnosed within our own family and network of friends and it touches us every time we take a call at the winery or speak with a customer at cellar door who is, or has, a family member or loved one battling with, or has passed away as a result of cancer.
One of those very dear customers lost their precious son, Martin, in late 2018 to bowel cancer. We were devastated for their loss, but equally inspired by their 11 year old granddaughter’s efforts to raise awareness and funds for bowel cancer after Martin's death. She cut off eleven inches of her own hair to donate to wigs, for people with cancer and alopecia and she also held a lemonade stand. In total, this incredible young lady raised $2,284.22 for Bowel Cancer Australia.
At the time she said “an individual, however young, can create change and I hope that through my hair chop and getting my community involved, conversations about bowel cancer will be had and people will be more aware of symptoms and of course that research will occur to facilitate a cure”.
Like Martin's niece, we too will be donating what we raise from our 2019 Crazy Dave sale to Bowel Cancer Australia. Australia has one of the highest rates of bowel cancer in the world so let’s keep the conversation about bowel cancer going, for Martin, his incredibly inspirational niece and all those individuals and families battling this insidious disease.
