Who is Jay?
Jay was just 32 years old when he was diagnosed with melanoma. He was your typical Aussie bloke – a husband, dad, son and mate to many. Overnight he went from being a truck driver to a cancer patient.
Jay underwent immediate surgery and treatment. 10 years on he is fighting fit, and is now fighting for another cause - to help raise awareness and find a cure for melanoma which kills one Australian every five hours.
Jay is a proud team member of Melanoma Institute Australia, with his other epic treks including:
- 2014 Sydney to Melbourne
- 2017 Brisbane to Sydney
