OWNER of the railway station cafe, Deb Daley, knows all too well the heartache brain cancer can cause.
“My brother died from a brain tumor in 2012,” Ms Daley said.
“He was diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor on December 24 2012, and passed away on December 29 the same year, so it was very sudden.”
The Junee railway station cafe raised a tremendous amount of money for the Charlie Teo Foundation.
On Sunday May 27 Ms Daley, organised a high tea fundraiser for brain cancer and raised a whopping $8000 to put towards research.
“It is amazing, 180 people attended on the day which was fabulous,” Ms Daley said.
“A lot of people supported us in raffle tickets, donations and I had friends and staff who gave their time, which was great.”
Ms Daley is hosting another event to support and raise money for brain cancer and is “looking for sponsors”.
Go Grey for Brain Cancer will be held at the Railway Station Cafe in Junee on Saturday June 30, and Ms Daley will be shaving her head.
