Man donates $3000 to Erin's charity
The story of a brave 5 year old girl who fought and won her battle with cancer has inspired a generous donation.
Erin Toomey had chemotherapy every day for two-and-and-half years to beat her non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, taking her last treatment at the weekend.
Her school, Holy Trinity Primary at Eltham North, threw a celebration yesterday.
Kevin has told Neill Mitchell he was so moved he drove across Melbourne to present a $3000 cheque to the cancer charity Challenge through Erin's mother, Kathy.
Neil Mitchell arranged an on-air chat between Kathy and Kevin just before 9AM Tuesday morning
MONDAY: Erin Toomey has finally ended chemotherapy treatments and her classmates at Holy Trinity Primary school are celebrating and raising funds for her cause this morning.
"We've got face painters, fairies, you name it we've got it," Principal Vince Bumpstead told Neil Mitchell about the heartwarming event.
Program Reporter Seb Costello said the response has been so strong that 'Yellow Day' might just become an annual fundraiser for children affected by cancer.
LAST WEEK: A 5-year-old Eltham North Girl who has been enduring daily chemotherapy for over 2 years finally finishes her treatment this weekend.
Erin Toomey was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma when she was 3 and has been receiving constant treatment ever since.
“She has just maintained that positive attitude and I suppose it is just all she has known, so she has just handled it and embraced it really well” Erin’s mother Kathy told Neil Mitchell.
LISTEN BELOW: Erin and her mother Kathy chat to Neil Mitchell.
To mark this very special occasion Erin's school mates at Holy Trinity Primary School in Eltham North are organising a celebration and a fundraiser.
On Monday the students at the School will all wear Yellow to help build awareness and raise funds for ‘Challenge’ who provide much needed support for children affected by cancer.
Neil Mitchell has asked for your help in providing anything 'yellow' to make the day as special as it can be.

Thank-you to everyone who helped this wonderful day. I was a part of the organising committee which was run by a selected group of Grade 5's. It was such a wonderful day to be a part of.

It was so fantastic to be a part of the "Yellow Day" fundraiser at Holy Trinity today. The spirit couldn't be damped by the weather. Students every where a buzz in yellow. Film crew from various media raising awareness for the need to maintain funds for organisations like Challenge who do so much for children with cancer, their families and siblings.
A day, also used as a remberance to those families who have unfortunately not experienced success in beating cancer.
Well done Toomey Family - a happy day!!!Melissa Gatt Monday 28 May, 2012 - 3:20 PM
