Support The Wolfy Foundation fundraising to find a cure for Brain Cancer

By The Wolfy Foundation

David Wolf

David Wolf was not your average 22 year old. Each day whether it be at school, uni, holidays or home was highlighted with fun. David had an innate way of making each of his friends and family members feel they were really special. And we were; we received an abundance of love, happiness and laughter.

The news that the headaches were in fact caused by a brain tumour and that emergency surgery was required was mortifying. As the day played out it became clear that our only hope was for Prof Charlie Teo to operate. The problem was that Charlie had been in surgery all day and was planning to leave for overseas the next morning. We managed to get David’s scans sent to Charlie in theatre and received the wonderful message: “get him ready, he’s next”.

The surgery ended around midnight. David was home two days later and adjusted to a life taken up with chemo and radiation. He understood the dreadful statistics but was determined to live his life, choosing not to be a statistic.

Charlie gifted all of us 11 glorious months. David climbed Masada in Israel, climbed pyramids in Mexico and skied morning to night.

He commented that in some way he was grateful – if it weren't for the cancer he would not appreciate how wonderful his life was. 

His legacy to all of us was that we would experience his presence at times of our own joy and happiness.

The Wolfy Foundation was formed and is fundamentally operated by David’s mates with some assistance from family. They continue to struggle with the gap left in their lives.

They have chosen to transfer their grief into a driving force to raise money for Cure Brain Cancer.
