#fightlikemaddie - Saturday July 8th

The Melton Football Netball Club in conjunction with the Robinson Family are set on raising awareness of Aplastic Anaemia and the effects it has on adolescents commonly aged between 15-25, while also thanking and recognising the outstanding contribution the Maddie Riewoldt Foundation is making to the community.

Unfortunately earlier this year one of the Bloods family Alex Robinson was diagnosed with Aplastic Anaemia at the age of 16 years.

This weekend all three Melton Football sides will be wearing Maddie Riewoldt purple laces against Redan with the hope to raise awareness and raise funds.

Throughout the day there will be a collection around the ground, netball courts and at half time functions with 100% of money raised passed onto the foundation.

Alex and the Robinson family will be guests of the Richmond Football Club at the Maddie Riewoldt game being played between St. Kilda and Richmond Saturday evening. Alex will be present on the ground prior to the commencement of the match.

If you wish to assist in raising funds, donations can be made at https://www.mrv.org.au/ and shoelaces can be purchased for $5 per pair at https://www.mrv.org.au/store/products/4/laces


Support Maddie Riewoldt’s Vision

Maddie Riewoldt’s Vision was founded by the Riewoldt family in June 2015.

The Vision aims to raise funds to #fightlikemaddie and find new treatments for Bone Marrow Failure. The Vision aims to ultimately find a cure for the syndromes that affect younger Australians each year.

Bone marrow is an organ in the body that keeps your blood healthy; producing red and white blood cells and platelets that carry oxygen around your body and help fight disease. When you have a Bone Marrow Failure Syndrome your bone marrow stops producing and it’s only through repeated blood transfusions and bone marrow transplants that people can hope to survive.

Our organisation has been created to support the understanding of Bone Marrow Failure Syndromes and to help those suffering from the disease and continue towards our ultimate goal – finding the cure.

Maddie fought her battle with inspiring determination and courage. It’s now up to us to put our heads down and lift our hearts and #FightLikeMaddie
