SIMON CHRISTIESimon Christie is a pioneer of the 4×4 industry having developed Australia’s first dedicated 4wd television program. He has established himself and his brands as reputable media partners and has attained considerable international recognition for his work as an off road ambassador. Simon now owns and hosts three 4×4 related TV programs and travels the world as a guest and delegate at many well recognised international off road events.
Simon first became aware of the Peace of Mind Foundation when a friend asked him to assist with the first ever Family Retreat. The opportunity transformed Simon’s understanding of the challenges faced by sufferers of brain cancer and their families and the insight into the Foundation and it’s work left no doubt that Simon wanted to contribute more.
“Getting involved was easy” Mr Christie said. “We all want to help and contribute and we are all thankful for our own health. But meeting those affected by brain cancer and being exposed to the emotion and challenges of this destructive disease was the turning point. Hearing about the lack of funding, witnessing the compassion and dedication of those already involved and empathising with the inconceivable impact this disease has on people left no doubt that I needed to do more. Being asked to be an ambassador was humbling, exciting and an honour. It was also an opportunity to be more involved, to contribute more and to assist in educating and influencing others in regards to the desperate need for more support and funding. As an ambassador for the Peace of Mind Foundation I am challenged daily by the horrific impact this disease has but I am also in awe of the strength and resolve shown by the patients and their families. Brain Cancer is not a curable disease, it is barely treatable if at all, it is under funded and patients and their families face a perilous journey filled with little hope, minimal support and medical treatment that is expensive, sometimes unproven and sparingly available. My aim with the Peace of Mind Foundation is to assist with exposure, educate people, provide support where possible and attract desperately needed funding.
