Jack was diagnosed with the blood cancer last year and a GoFund me effort raised AUD$64,000 to help pay for potentially life-saving treatment.
While the early signs were promising, it is now the case that Jack desperately needs to find a stem cell donor.
Gary and his family have requested that all Evertonians register as a donor in the hope that a match can be found so if you are under 45 in particular (research suggests that younger stem cell donors offer a much better chance of long-term survival but some of the organisations will accept over-45s as donors), you can sign up at wmda.info, DKMS or at anthonynolan.org.
There is also a new GoFundMe page if you would like to donate to Jack's cause.

Life can be so unfair at times, while you get some really 'bad eggs' that seem to sail through life unscathed, leaving a trail of misery for others in their wake. I wish Gary and his family and of course Jack every good wish, and hope that he/they combats this Demon.

All the more incentive to get your donation fund topped up at the Bramley Moore today.
I must have missed the link on this one, but I will donate to Jack's cause.

I had the priviledge of being able to save a life 11 years ago and it's like winning the lottery (for yourself and someone else).
So, even if the EFC official event is over, you can simply and easily register with your local organisation and help save someone's life. Some things are simply more important than football.
