Fuck Cancer

Fuck Cancer

May 02, 2018

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.

You can hard-knock the bastard, breach your way through and get what you need. But in terms of longevity, that door is cactus.

Motivation for the motivated
Motivation for the motivated

Motivation for the motivated is a funny thing, because it isn’t about motivation at all. A tiny portion of society know exactly what they want, how to get it and what they have to do to achieve it.

They don’t need to be pushed or motivated, they need to be controlled.

“You’re just really good at exercising”

Strength, stamina & skill. They’re the three vital components in being hard to kill. Being fit is hard. Being strong is hard. Being equally fit & strong, near impossible. Being highly skilled is good, but lacks lethality without the other two. These are not mutually supportive concepts, and they’re exceptionally hard to plan and train for. To a good standard that is.
