John has had the privilege to know the Anthoney family for many years, prior to the tragic loss of Dainere in 2013. John is also a family man, with his own two children, born and bred in the Capital and takes great pleasure in assisting the fund to help spread the word and raise money to bring about a cure.

At the 2015 Gala Dinner, John was honoured to accept the role of Patron and made the following speech:

“Thank you to Yvonne, Stephen, Jarrett, Nalani and The committee for honouring me with this humbling role.

I have never met 4 people who are so selfless in their lives to raise as much money as they can to solve the illness that has taken their lovely Dainere’ from them.

It will continue to be my task to assist the family and the fund on promoting the awareness of brain tumour research especially in children.

The role of Patron can also be shared by us all, in the discussions we have at home, on facebook and with family and friends every day to get the word out that this terrible illness that can affect any one of us and needs to be solved quickly.”

John is always contactable and welcomes discussion from like minded local Canberra business people and individuals who also wish to help the Dainere’s Rainbow Brain Tumour Research Fund, either financially or with their time to ensure brain tumours, especially in Children, become a treatable and curable disease.

We acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land where we meet and work, the Ngunnawal people, and the many other Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples from across Australia who have now made Canberra their home. We celebrate and respect their continuing culture and the contribution they make to the life of the ACT and region.

Dainere's Rainbow is a not for profit organisation - 100% of all funds raised or donated go to childhood brain cancer research at Sydney Children's Hospital
