A New Angel

Sadly there is another angel watching over us today. Kristian Anderson was 36 and lost his brave fight against bowel cancer at 8am on 2nd January 2012.

Kristian's blog has been truly inspirational.

He had a very strong faith and I admire him for this. I find it hard to have a belief in a higher being, especially during this fight. However Kristian's faith kept him strong. He leaves behind a wife and two young sons. Any death is a tragedy but even more so when two boys will now grow up without a father. So wrong and so unfair.

Kristian campaigned successfully for the availability of the drug Erbitux in his home of Australia. It is a new "biological" drug in the war - an antibody against cancer. It is a targeted treatment but as a result very expensive. Thanks to Kristian, Australians can now receive Erbitux.

Rest well Kristian. You are with your Father now.
