“I’ve battled with cancer.”

Coach CJ Bruton

Coach CJ Bruton knows the harsh reality of cancer all too well.

“I was playing basketball in New Zealand when I got hit in the neck and had a little lump on the side of my jaw,” says CJ.

“I thought nothing of it. But over the next few years it grew pretty big.”

After reluctantly seeing a specialist a few years later, CJ was told the lump in his neck needed to be removed.

An biopsy of the lump confirmed CJ’s worst fear – it was cancerous.

Thankfully the procedure successfully removed the cancer, but he still requires regular check-ups for the next five years to reduce his risk of the cancer returning.

Unfortunately, not everyone is so blessed. Last year alone, cancer took over 49,000 lives in Australia.

With your donation right now, we can raise $20,000 by the end of our match against the SEM Phoenix on March 4 and save more lives right here in Adelaide. 

Join the Sixers fight!

With you and the Sixers in our corner, we have a fighting chance to discover medical breakthroughs that will find cures and save lives. It might just save your life, or that of your precious loved ones.

“The Hospital Research Foundation Group plays a big part in keeping people alive and keeping dreams alive,” says CJ.

“I’m asking kindly from my heart to donate, because medical research has definitely saved my life and played a part in helping my family.”

Thanks to the incredible medical team who are aiding his recovery, CJ can continue to follow his passion for basketball and watch his children grow.

“I’ve got a lot more to give. I’m taking it day by day.”

By donating today, you will have a personal hand in finding cures, discovering new treatments, and improving patient care across South Australia.

We need you on our side.

It’s because of generous people like you that we can fight for cures and improved care in more than 50 areas of medical research and patient care. These areas span from pregnancy to end-of-life, and all the devastating diseases in between.

Your generous donation will bring hope to thousands of people fighting cancer, heart disease, mental illness, dementia, diabetes and much more. Everyone deserves someone fighting for their health.
