Why I’m doing Jeans for Genes for My Own Idea

I care about the 1 in 20 Aussie kids who face a birth defect or genetic disease. My middle daughter, Harper, is one of them! 

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!

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 Harpers. 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.
