Kids Dream Day - Free Dress Day

A free dress day to raise funds for the Isabella and Marcus Paediatric Brainstem Tumour Fund was recently held.   Isabella and Marcus died from an incurable brain tumour that is most common in primary-aged children.  Isabella was a student at TMPS in Prep and Year 1 and her mother Khush Harris is an Integration Aide at the school.  "Kids Dream Day" encourages children to let their imagination run free and dream about what they would like to be when they grow up; a dancer, doctor, teacher, footballer, superman......and dress accordingly.

Brain tumours are the leading cause of cancer deaths in children, more than leukaemia and research is desperately needed to develop cures for our children.  The Charity has established 3 laboratories in Melbourne to research brainstem tumours in children.
