It was 2008 when James was first diagnosed with Leukaemia and he was just finishing Year 5.

His medical treatment involved a gruelling three years of chemo therapy under the care of Monash Medical Centre in Clayton as part of a research study. As a result of his treatment he lost all his hair for about 12 months and battled through the sickness.

It was the love, care, kindness and inspiration of his family, friends and organisations such as Make a Wish, Aardvark and Carlton Football Club that helped to keep James positive and on track.

Nine years later, James has not only survived his trials and tribulations, he has forged an expansive and creative life.

He started playing drums around 8 years old to strengthen his ampidexterity and now at 20 years old he is the drummer in two bands, “Rhysics” and "Eye Seaweed”.

Now at Monash University, he is currently studying Human Rights and running his own on campus radio show “Mind Fuzz”.

To give back, James has organised a fund raising event for the World's Greatest Shave on March19th to raise money for further medical research. His successful treatment was part of a research study that has gone onto help with future outcomes for other patients.
