Our Latest Mate!

Cody Cooper

Cody and his twin brother Nate were born 9 weeks early. At 12 days old, Cody suffered a severe brain bleed effecting both sides of his brain. He wasn't expected to survive but pulled through and he was expected to have moderate to severe disabilities in his future. 

After 12 weeks in hospital, Cody came home but only 2 days later he was back in hospital fighting for life with Ecoli Meningitis. Once again Cody won the battle for survival but now faces a life with severe disability. 

Cody has severe spastic quadriplegic cerebral palsy and epilepsy. He will require a lot of expensive equipment and therapy to live the best life possible for him.

DONATE FOR A MATE

Raising money for mate in need.

Donate For A Mate (DFAM) was started in May 2013 by Gold Coast professional stunt performer Scotty Gregory to help support his mate who is fighting MDS and is waiting for a bone marrow transfer. 

To date Scotty has eaten the hottest chillies available; scootered through the middle of Surfers Paradise in a bikini; taken on professional fighter John Wayne Parr in the ring; dressed up as William Wallace from Braveheart and had high-tea at Palazzo Versace hotel and worn an electric collar which someone was activating at different intervals while Scotty sang the Australian National Anthem.  These are only a taste of what Scotty has done to raise money for his mate.

Donate For A Mate is now a registered charity and is on the lookout for new “mates” to support.

DFAM receives nominations from mates for ‘mates in need’ and raises money by having people pledge money for Scotty or members of the DFAM Pledge crew to perform stunts to receive that money.  

Whether your ‘mate’ is suffering an illness or has a family member that is ill and needs financial help with medical treatment, bills or ongoing therapy etc, the team at DFAM is keen to assist.
