A fundraiser and trivia night will be held on Saturday, September 20, at Ettalong Diggers to raise money for brain cancer research in memory of a former St Philip’s Christian College Gosford student who lost her battle with the disease
A Night to Remember will be held in memory of Taylor Robins, who was 14 when she lost her battle with brain cancer. The evening, which will include raffles, prizes, games, an auction and entertainment, will be hosted by 2GO radio personality Paddy Gerrard. Taylor was diagnosed with an aggressive grade three brain tumour in 2011 at the age of 12. Over the next two years she underwent a number of surgeries and procedures, as well as radiation and chemotherapy treatments. Taylor lost her battle with the disease on March 1, last year. Taylor’s mother Katrina Robins described the latter stages of Taylor’s time in hospital as an “emotional battlefield”. Despite being the leading cause of cancer death for people under the age of 39, brain cancer remains one of the most under-studied of all cancers. Last year A Night to Remember raised $25,000, with all proceeds going to The Children’s Hospital at Westmead Brain Cancer Research Centre.
