Ethan’s uncle Ross and grandpa Steve are now both sporting some very special Super Ethan tattoos! The work was done last Monday night by Greg at Five Star Tattoo Parlour in Fremantle.
Thanks also to Greg for donating $200.00 to the Scholarship. If anyone else wants their very own Super Ethan tattoo, Greg has kept the template.
In the photo below, the man-love is being shared by Greg and Steve. Ross’s tattoo is top-right, and Steve’s is shown at the bottom.
As we have talked about on this blog before, Ethan has been unable to eat or drink properly since his surgery back in January last year. He has had a few failed attempts to try food, but has always been too unwell to get very far. We know from his video fluoroscopy last year that he is only safe to try swallowing puréed food, anything else might end up in his lungs (hello trip to PMH, not good!) so we need to be careful.
Now that Ethan is feeling better than at any stage over the last year, we can start trying to teach him to eat again…so today is day 1 of Ethan’s food journey! We will be providing updates and photos via Ethan’s Facebook page (see Ethan Davies Scholarship for Brain Cancer Research on Facebook). We hope you enjoy following his progress and we really, really, really look forward to seeing him enjoy his food once again.
Collection tins are now available to raise money for the Scholarship! If you think one of these would look good in your workplace, or in the workplace of someone you know, please contact Ashlie Hirniak (by phone on (08) 9489 7998 or via firstname.lastname@example.org) at the Telethon Institute for Child Health Research and she can hook you up with one. Each tin is officially endorsed by Super Ethan!
