Husband and wife team a powerful force against cancer

Host Heroes Bruce and Chris Amos recently hosted their fifth consecutive Longest Table event!

The husband and wife team gathered their friends for a night of good food and fundraising on Friday 17 July and raised almost $580 for cancer research!

Bruce unfortunately knows the harsh reality of cancer, losing his loving mother after an eight-year battle with Leukaemia in 2009.

“Despite everything, my mother remained incredibly strong, even looking after her husband whose health was also failing while going through treatment. She even managed in her 80th year, to fly by herself to Perth and back in one day to attend her granddaughter’s wedding,” Bruce said.

For their menu, Bruce and Chris organised a four-course spread for their guests to enjoy, even pairing their food choices to match with different wines for each course. Chris also makes her traditional Christmas pudding for dessert each year, and this year was no exception!

Bruce says a future free of cancer would be something well beyond comprehension.

“To be free of cancer would be such a huge relief to many and to be part of that experience with all the positivity that would follow is something that we hope to be around for.”
