All donations, big and small are greatly appreciated... However, if Dean's story simply inspires you to have a check up that you otherwise wouldn't have had, I would feel that we have achieved in what I am trying to do with this.

Please give, and please look after yourself! Listen to your body and get regular check ups, early detection is the best way to beat this insidious disease...

Rest in peace brother Maynard xx.

Dean Maynard was one of the funniest, kind and best people that we have ever had the pleasure of calling friend... More so than that - he was our mate...
In November 2012 he felt unwell and went to see his doctor - a number of tests later, at the age of 25 he was diagnosed with aggressive Bowel Cancer.
Deano fought hard, with his loving wife, Abby, his amazing family - Wayne, Jacqui and Ashy by his side - and the support of his phenomenal group of mates - we thought Dean had beaten the disease and gotten the all clear... Deano was back to his beloved hockey training  and feeling great!

But in April 2013 that feeling was shattered- when a PET scan revealed that his cancer was not only back, but spreading aggressively.
With little treatment options available - Deano battled like a champion until the end...

But on July 21st, 2013 - Dean's battle ended... Just two weeks shy of his 27th birthday...

Our goal is not only to raise funds for Bowel Cancer Australia - but to raise awareness in our generation - this thing isn't just an "old person's" disease.... If you don't feel right - think about Deano... Early detection is key to a good prognosis... And it's better to be safe than sorry when the stakes are so high...

 If Deano's legacy can save a life, because someone went and had an uncomfortable conversation with their doctor that they otherwise wouldn't have had - then we feel that it is a positive that we can take from our tragedy...

Please get to know your body, what's normal and what isn't... And if you don't feel right - get it checked out by a physician.

If you would like to donate to our cause - we would greatly appreciate all donations, big or small.
