Mark Scarborough is the founder of My Gungahlin, which is now part of the Region Media Group, where Mark is now an active contributor. Region Media is Canberra and the surrounding region’s fastest growing source of quality local news and conversation. Mark first found out about Dainere’s story after her passing when herself and Jarrett were named Young Canberran Citizens of the Year in 2013. Having also met another local Gungahlin family that lost their son, Benny to a brain tumour Mark felt compelled to help raise awareness and funds for research to find a cure for this disease.
“I am honoured to be entrusted by the Anthoney family to be given the privilege of being named as Ambassador for Dainere’s Rainbow Brain Tumour Research Fund. I have been amazed at the determination this family has in honouring Dainere’s final wish to find a cure so no other child will suffer from this disease. We all recognise there is a long way to go, however each step we take together gets us closer to finding a positive outcome. Together, the journey is easier.”
