The Tate Scarce Fund
The Tate Scarce Fund has been created by parents Jo and Dean Scarce and their sons Riley and Cadyn, in loving memory of their son and brother, Tate.
Tate was known for his infectious sense of humour and easy-going outlook on life. He was always happy and touched the lives of all those he met.
On the 28th May 2013 the Scarce family learned that their vibrant, outgoing son and brother Tate, had developed a rare form of childhood cancer known as Desmoplastic Small Cell Round Tumour (DSCRT). Tate was only the fifth child in Australia to ever be diagnosed with this uncommon form of cancer and his life was cut far too short.
From his first day of diagnosis, Tate spent an incredible amount of time at the Royal Children’s Hospital, “The treatment we received at The Royal Children’s Hospital was second to none, we encountered so many amazing oncologists, surgeons, specialists and nurses. We couldn’t be more grateful of the care and support we received”.
The Tate Scarce Fund, has been created to raise awareness and much needed funds for research of, not just DSCRT but all, rare, childhood cancers.
