The Friends of Finlay project was formed by the Higgs family to raise support for Finlay Higgs and his family, help fund further research into childhood cancer, and increase awareness of Hepatoblastoma, by telling the story of Finlay Higgs and his courageous battle.

Finlay Higgs was a happy little blue-eyed, fair-haired, 18-month old boy when his mother, Katey Higgs, discovered an unusual protrusion on his stomach on the Australia Day Weekend of 2015. Doctors found that the lump on his side was caused by a large tumour distending his stomach. They diagnosed him with Stage Four High Risk Hepatoblastoma, which is a very rare form of liver cancer that is most often diagnosed in children under the age of three.

To this day, Finlay continues to bravely fight his cancer. After multiple surgeries and treatments, his diagnosis is now Stage Four High-Risk Refractory Hepatoblastoma, and is a living and breathing miracle to have survived so far.

The aim of this fundraising page is to raise awareness for the need to conduct further research into the rare form of childhood cancer, Hepatoblastoma, as well as raise funds for childhood cancer research. Stay tuned for all the different ways you can help us fundraise!
