Yesterday on the 25th of October, 2014, a 17 year old classmate of mine Ben Phillips, known and loved by many within the Geraldton community, suffered a burst aneurysm on the left side of his brain whilst diving for crayfish. He has since been flown down to Perth for treatment in critical condition, and his family are awaiting results accessing the extent of the damage. His life is still hanging in the balance.

His classmates, including myself, have sought to raise money to assist the Phillips' family for medical/travel/hotel and all manners of other expenses. For more information on how to help, please visit If you wish to pay using another method, please contact me on I am in direct communication with his family at the moment and will make sure to find a way to get your money to them.

He missed his graduation due to this tragedy, and all we want is to be able to see him well again. Thanks for reading, please do check out the link, and have a good one. Keep fighting Ben, we love ya.
