Cash raised for bone mar­row diseases

Midwest Times - - CHARITIES -

Ger­ald­ton’s Raema Rose-Spinks has raised $1200 in sup­port of young peo­ple liv­ing with bone mar­row fail­ure syn­dromes.

The die-hard St Kilda fan handed over the cheque to char­ity or­gan­i­sa­tion Mad­die Riewoldt’s Vi­sion in Oc­to­ber.

In­spired by Saints star Nick Riewoldt, who lost his sis­ter Mad­die to aplas­tic anaemia in 2015, Ms Rose-Spinks raised al­most $6000 in less than two years to help fund the or­gan­i­sa­tion’s re­search into the dis­ease.

She at­tended Riewoldt’s re­cent book launch, where she collected signed copies for fundrais­ing.
