Kai the Cancer Warrior

We (my brother and I) have decided to commit to running the Sydney marathon with just four weeks to train, why you ask?

Because we have been deeply touched with the story of a warrior called Kai Nell, this Perth based little fella is battling hard for the 2nd time, and we want to support him and his family, by pushing the boundaries and completing a 42k marathon run and what right now seems impossible.

We have never run a marathon previously, so this challenge is obviously big anyway, especially given the short notice, but we are prepared to do it for Kai, his parents and his brothers by complete this gruelling run for them.

Kai’s story:

Early in 2015, at just 2 years of age little warrior Kai Nell was diagnosed with High-Risk Acute Myeloid Leukaemia, he fought a tough battle with 4 rounds of high dose chemo and a life-saving bone marrow transplant.

After spending over 6 months living in an isolation room at PMH he got to go home, he was in remission but the journey was not over, AML is a notoriously hard cancer to cure and relapse is common, and after nearly 1 year since his bone marrow transplant, his parents Kara and Richard have been given the devastating news that he has relapsed in recent weeks.

This means little Kai has to undergo more intensive chemo treatment and another bone marrow transplant, he has a huge fight ahead of him.

Throughout Kai’s diagnosis and treatment to date, Kara and Richard have selflessly raised over $50,000 for charities wanting to bring awareness and funding to this awful disease.
