Glenn McDonald, was a true brain cancer Warrior, he fought
this disease with every fibre of his being.
Sadly after nearly 16 years, he lost his battle yesterday. I
have so many memories of Glenn, as many of us at the Foundation do. He always
looked on the bright side of life, he was never a victim, and we had many
laughs together, especially at the annual Golf Days.
Glenn would always be my side kick on the coffee cart at
these events and his enthusiasm for life was effervescent and heart-warming.
His family were his number one priority, along with surfing,
and raising awareness and funds for the Foundation.
The last time I saw Glenn, was at the Walk4BrainCancer in
Centennial Park last November, he always brought a smile to my face, even
though I knew he was in the battle for his life. I will always treasure the
photo we had taken together.

My thoughts are with his family today, as I know how
difficult it is to lose a husband, a father and a friend to brain cancer.
I first met Glenn before both he & Stan were diagnosed at a lovely restaurant in the Shire, over 20 years ago - he came over to our table and introduced himself – how lucky we were to have met him.
Rest in Peace Glenn, I know there will be a couple of mates
up there to greet you.
