The onus of illness is not on the individual but the entire village. The Wollongong community are joining forces to raise funds for medical and living expenses for a much loved local legend Laurie (Trucken) Thompson. Having survived Stage Three Melanoma several years ago, Laurie was diagnosed with Glioblastoma (GBM). GBM carries a poor prognosis despite surgery, radiation and chemotherapy. Novel immunotherapy treatments such as Dentric Cell Vaccines, are being used with amazing results but devestatingly only available overseas. In order to help raise these necessary funds (upwards of a whopping AUD200,000) they will be throwing an epic party where the collective community can get together, grab a feed and in true Truckin fashion, get down and boogie to some of the Gong and Sydney’s greatest live acts! Who’s on the bill: Chase The Sun, Claude Hay, Ruby Tuesdays, Gosh, Chuparosa, Mac Tango, Billy Demos, Essem, Loki Hines and more. Huge Raffle and Lucky Door Prize, Silent Auctions, Live Art, Food by Take5. All proceeds of this event will go directly to their mate Laurie.
