Stories of hope

More than 2,400 schools, organisations and clubs across Australia showed their true colours for kids with cancer this Footy Colours Day season.
Our champion fundraisers came up with some match-winning ideas this year, including hosting club versus club competitions, footy sweeps, round-robin championships and even “Pie the Boss” challenges!
A special thank you goes out to our long-term major sponsor Foxtel and our wonderful team of Footy Colours Day ambassadors for their support in 2017.
Luca, now 10, was a typical six-year-old boy in 2013 when he began to complain of a sore knee.
After Luca’s complaints of a sore knee progressed to pains so severe he could no longer walk, Luca’s mum, Anna took him to the Royal Children’s Hospital for further testing and scans.
The worst possible outcome soon became a reality - Luca was diagnosed with osteosarcoma - an aggressive type of bone cancer.
