Why I’m doing Jeans for Genes

I am partipating in the 2024 Rotto Swin to raise funds for a special little girl called Everleigh, who has WOREE Syndrome. There are only 8 cases documented in Australia. 

Everleigh will never be able to walk, talk, feed herself, toilet herself or live independently. She has 30+ seizures everyday, needs a nasal gastric tube to feed and depends on her parents for all daily activities & needs. 

I am raising much needed to funds, to help find a cure for these genetic conditions.

I care about the 1 in 20 Aussie kids who face a birth defect or genetic disease. That’s one in every classroom, maybe someone you know or love. Every day, many of these kids wake up to pills, injections, hospital visits (or worse). They never get the chance to run around and just be kids. If they can endure that, and keep smiling, then the least I can do is fight alongside them. That’s why I’m doing Jeans for Genes and raising money for Children’s Medical Research Institute. I want to give these kids better treatments and maybe even a cure.

I’ve signed up to do my own thing, so I can raise awareness and start the conversation—we need to do all we can to help save more kids’ lives. Can you help by sharing this message with the people you know and asking them to donate too? I (and millions of Aussie kids) thank you for it!

Here's just one example of how, together, we can change things:

You might think you won’t need this research, that it’s not personal, but genetic diseases are a ticking timebomb. Most families don’t know they carry the gene for a disease, and many genetic diseases are not even inherited—they happen randomly, out of the blue. Like Kalarny’s. Like cancer. Most people don’t know that cancer is caused by changes in genes—but almost everyone will be touched by it. So, the research you and I support today may one day help someone we know, someone in our family.

There’s lots of work to do, but there is also lots of hope.

Join me. Share this message. Donate. Thank You!
