Fuck Cancer

Fuck Cancer

Ladies & Gentlemen, by this means we would like to introduce to you @willy.beating.cancer - He is a serving member of the 7th Battalion, Royal Australian Regiment and Afghanistan Veteran. On return to Australia from his deployment to Afghanistan Matt was diagnosed with an oligodendroglioma. Brain cancer.

We’ve come into contact with Matt through social media and when he told us his story, we wanted to do something. He was looking for a little motivation to stay active in his home gym whilst undergoing chemotherapy. We did the least we can here, but we want to do more. Our personal experiences from witnessing, up close, the horrific effect of cancer has left a mark on us which will last a lifetime.

The Veteran community is a powerful entity, so in saying that.

What would we like you to do? Simple, send Matt a message on his social media and let him know that the veteran community is with him to beat the shit out of this thing, because aside from medicine, the will to fight and survive is medicine in itself. And we never let our brothers fight alone, ever.

Matt is currently receiving medical care provided by the ADF, but if you’re willing to do more, Matt would like you to support Carries Beanies 4 Brain Cancer (www.carriesbeanies4braincancer.com)

Oh, and send nudes - it says so right behind Matt.

Top level gangsters get approval for a nerd to hit the delete button at 50,000ft. Low level gangster? You get a personal delete button, from the index finger - and that guy is looking at the whites of your eyeballs.

Weak leadership is a cancer.
Weak leadership is a cancer.

This risk adverse approach is a result of fearful and weak leadership, where policy and planning are driven by fear their of public opinion courtesy of a rotten mainstream media platform. Any organisation that has any form of conflict at its pointy end should be driven to support the end-user. None deserve a frail egocentric leader who is fearful of answering some difficult questions, all of which have very simple answers.

This weakness from policy makers and commanders spreads like a cancer and infects every single individual below them...

Little key, heavy door
Little key, heavy door

The consistent application of basic training principles is the little key. The heavy door is whatever your reason is for training the first place. Every locked door opens easily with the right key. You can hard-knock the bastard, breach your way through and get what you need. But in terms of longevity, that door is cactus.
