Footy greats praise Jack’s last gift
TWO rugby league greats have honoured the memory of 10-year-old Jack Cameron, who tragically passed away last month in a road accident.
In a regular segment on Tuesday night, Darren Lockyer and Wally Lewis spoke about Jack and his family, and the incredible fundraising effort that has followed the tragedy.
Mr Lockyer remembered meeting the Cameron family back in 2018 as part of a drought tour.
“Our thoughts and prayers are with the family … One of the things that family wanted to do is called ‘Jack’s Last Gift’, which is raising funds for Epilepsy Queensland,” Mr Lockyer said.
“Jack was a keen Broncos supporter and a very talented footballer.”
Mr Lewis, who is an ambassador for Epilepsy Queensland, said the amount of money that had been raised was incredible.
“On behalf of Epilepsy Queensland, I can only say a very big thank you to the Cameron family,” he said.
“That is quite extraordinary that they’re opening their hearts when we should be the ones showing sympathy in this terrible time of need.”
At the time of publication, more than $200,000 had been raised for Epilepsy Queensland through the Jack’s Last Gift online fundraiser.
