BONUS: The Bravest Eight-Year-Old With Terminal Cancer (We’ve Got Your Back)

This morning we met Brooklyn, the eight-year-old with the biggest smile in Sydney. When Brooklyn was just four, the little guy was diagnosed with Neuroblastoma, a type of cancer that grows in the cells of the body's nerves. Since then, Brooklyn has relapsed numerous times and the cancer is now terminal. His parents, Cara and John, have now been told treatment will no longer be available for him.

After the family recently brought his 9th birthday party forward from October to give him one last celebration whilst there is still time, Fitzy and Wippa wanted to help keep that smile on Brooklyn’s face. His parents told us he's obsessed with hotels so we teamed up with Wotif to send the family for a weekend at the Sofitel Sydney Darling Harbour, with tickets to all the best attractions in town, including a family pass to Luna Park with food, beverages and photos for the day, plus $10,000 to help Cara and John cover medical costs and expenses. We’ve got your back, Brooklyn.
