In February 2015, 7 year old Kaden McDevitt was diagnosed with Liver Cancer. Kaden’s parents Finn and Lee never imagined facing another battle for Kaden.

Life has been tough already for the McDevitt’s, see 7 years ago Kaden joined this world after a 27 week pregnancy, and the first three months of his life was spent in hospital, fighting for his life.

The McDevitt’s are originally from Melbourne, and moved to Madora Bay in Western Australia 2 years ago.

It looks like Kaden will face 3 months in an out of hospital with an agressive combination of Chemotherapy and Raditotherapy, and likely surgery. Kaden and his family certainly don’t deserve this (nobody does!), but it goes to show that if anyone can get through this,ย Kaden and his family can!

  2. No name of the account for making a direct deposit to the McDevitt fund, only the BSB and Account number, my bank will ask for an account name

    1. Hi Sandra, At the moment the Account is in my name (I am Kaden’s Uncle), you can use “Craig Eastwood” as the account name. We are transferring the money across to Finula and Lee. Thank you so much.

  4. Hi Craig,

    Apologies if this is duplicated as I think I have already sent a message.

    I have transferred the money raised from Jim’s 24 Minecraft-a-thon. At today’s exchange rate it works out at around $374 ish… could you please let me know either via Facebook (Kris Park) or email (kmcd1501@gmail.com) to let me know if I have done it right ๐Ÿ™ I am a bit blonde when it comes to these things. Not bad though for a computer game!!

    Keep up the good work it’s great getting regular updates ๐Ÿ™‚

  9. Hi Kaden,
    I admire your courage and strength to fight this disease. You are doing a great job.
    Wish you all the best.

  10. To Lee, Finn, Kaden & Liam,
    In October myself & 2 of my amazing girlfriends (Emma & Katie) participated with me in Tough Mudder (Melbourne) I had always wanted to do something like this so I thought why not use Kaden as my motivation & in doing so we have raised $1,000 for him & his family. Safe to say now we’ve done it once I don’t think we’ll be doing it again anytime soon ๐Ÿ˜‚
    We hope this helps even if just a little bit towards bills, the mortgage or chrissy presents for the boys.
    Craig I deposited the money into your account this morn at the BOM Berwick branch but just realised I forgot to put my name as a reference sorry.
    Thinking of you all & sending big hugs & kisses to Kaden ๐Ÿ˜˜
    Love From Kellyann, Ryan, Zylah & Tiahna Simpson (Melbourne, Victoria) xxx

    1. What a wonderful effort Kellyann, Emma & Katie. Thank-you very very much for your generous donation to Kaden & family. It is this fantastic support that helps brave Kaden and his family continue the fight. Wishing you, your family and girlfriends a Merry Xmas and a Happy and safe new year. xo
