Marty Hankin and Robbie Kearns at the 2016 walk

We would like to congratulate Marty Hankin, pictured here with Storm great Robbie Kearns, who has just celebrated 4 years in the clear from Pancreatic Cancer. Marty was diagnosed with the disease at 42 years of age. Despite the odds against him, Marty set out to stare down this aggressive cancer and underwent a distal pancretectomy procedure. After a gruelling recovery, he is now fighting fit and has just celebrated 4 years in the clear.

Marty is a wonderful supporter of Avner’s Foundation and a regular fixture at our Melbourne walk. We congratulate Marty and look forward to seeing him at Alexandra Gardens on May 7th.
