Three-year-old Batman’s cancer fight inspires crowdfunding donations from across country
As three-year-old Eamon Obst puts on his favourite superhero cloak to fight cancer, a village of online supporters is rallying behind him by donating money.
In one week, $23,000 has been raised through a crowdfunding appeal on the GoFundMe website.
For Adelaide parents Justin and Kathy Obst, the donations will ease the financial pressure to return to work as they juggle Eamon’s hospital treatment with caring for his 12-week-old baby sister Isla.
Family friend and campaign organiser Michael Arnold, of Loxton in South Australia, said the response had been overwhelming.
“It was unreal. I think people put themselves in Justin and Kathy’s situation,” he said.
“A lot of our friends [in their 30s] have got kids and just can’t believe how hard [this is] and what sort of battle they’ve got.”
