In June 2019, while driving from Brisbane to Sydney, Mark had a large lump suddenly appear on the side of his neck. After an urgent flight back to Brisbane, and numerous tests, he was diagnosed with Cancer of the tonsil and neck. Following surgery and simultaneous Chemo and Radiation therapy, he finished treatment in Sept 2019 and started the recovery process. To help with recovery, we joined the Qld Head and Neck Cancer support group, and realised the extent that Head and Neck Cancer affects people. Through this group, and the “Beyond Five” organisation, we have become aware of the "Soup for the Soul' fundraising, and thought we would contribute so others can get the same help we did, but also help with research into this very disabling cancer.
Please help by either donating via this page or attending our place for a delicious bowl of Soup.

We are also wanting to raise awareness of this cancer. If you notice any unusual lumps or feelings in your head or neck, please get it checked promptly. Time is very important with the treatment of this cancer.

We had a great night at our Soup for the Soul fundraiser night enjoying soup & sweets around the campfire with some amazing people, a few even got up and danced. Thank you to those who had a virtual soup with us.
