House of love

The Australian Women's Weekly - - In Brief -

THE CHIL­DREN’S CAN­CER IN­STI­TUTE, which is used to ac­com­plish­ing mir­a­cles, has built an en­tire house from do­nated ma­te­ri­als and labour in 19 days. It will be auc­tioned on Oc­to­ber 21 to raise funds for child­hood can­cer re­search. “I’m hop­ing the money raised will help de­velop more tar­geted and kin­der treat­ments for kids,” says Brodie, whose son Nixon, three, was di­ag­nosed with a rare can­cer at birth. Fight­ing t now, Nixon has been unof cial fore­man on the site, where his builder dad, Nick, vol­un­teered. To learn more, visit build­foracure.org.au.

Ev­ery inch of the house was gen­er­ously do­nated – in­clud­ing the land, all ma­te­ri­als, labour and fur­nish­ings.
