My Corey Riot is something I have wanted to do for a LONG time and now with the help of the LEGEND Ray Lalotoa (MY SYDNEY RIOT) it has come to fruition.
I’m doing this to raise some money for an institute that really deserves it and receives no government funding, the Baird institute. In 2011 my brother passed away from complications of a very rare disease that no one really knew anything about. During his sickness Dr Michael Wilson from Baird performed two open heart surgeries on Corey and prolonged his life as long as possible. This event is kind of like a thankyou for all the amazing work that they did and still continue to do and with our support can help out more people just like Corey in the future.
Here is a little on The Baird Institute.
In Australia diseases of the heart, lungs and blood vessels kill more people than any other disease. The Baird Institute is the ONLY Australian organisation focusing entirely on clinical and surgical heart and lung research. Our commitment is to the patients who need heart or lung surgery. Help us to help them have a second chance at life.
In Australia, diseases of the heart, lungs and blood vessels kill more people than any other disease. These diseases a?ect people of all ages, and their incidence is growing.
Valuable research into heart and lung disease is being done, but very little time, e?ort or money is directed towards improvements in surgical techniques.
Our goal at The Baird Institute is quality patient care for people facing cardiothoracic surgery.
Established in 2001 in honour of the late Professor Douglas Baird, The Baird Institute is the only group in Australia to focus entirely on clinical and surgical cardiothoracic conditions.
Thanks for your support!
