A very special childhood friendship
After a valiant three year battle against a Rhabdomyosarcoma,Tom Hulston and Rob Stein’s childhood friend Fergus McCulla, tragically passed away last month at the age of 31.
A life tragically taken too soon by this devastating disease.
Tom and Rob considered themselves to be the lucky ones to have spent some of the best moments of their lives creating wonderful memories with Fergus from the time they met at Barker College Junior School over 20 years ago.
“Fergus suffered through three years of extremely invasive surgeries, oppressive chemotherapy regimens and exhausting radiation treatments, but in a true testament to his character, he never lost his sense of humour and kindness to other people. He was always going out of his way to make sure others were ok and never once complained about the unspeakably difficult time he was going through”, Tom and Rob recently wrote.
On the 19th of September, Rob and Tom courageously ran the Copenhagen Half Marathon in Fergus’ honour. Their target was originally $2000 however when this post was published, they had raised in excess of a very impressive amount of $4000.
We would like to extend our deepest gratitude to Tom and Rob, who whilst in the depths of grief having loss of their childhood friend, ran this gruelling event to raise funds to assist those living with a sarcoma diagnosis, in Fergus’ honour.
“We will never forget you Fergus and we will forever be inspired by your courage and kindness.” (Tom Hulston and Rob Stein, September 2021)
