Shaun was diagnosed with cancer in 2011 and today he’s in complete remission, which may be difficult to believe if you knew his story.
Two years ago, he was sitting in their family TV room recovering from chemotherapy and surgery, watching an international swimming event and asked his family a rhetorical question:
“I wonder what it would feel like racing at that level again?”
Today, he has beaten cancer and has his focus on another goal. With only five months of training, he’s officially ranked amongst the top sprinters (4th) in the country for men’s 50m freestyle.
We are proud to support all the swimming related Dreamfuel campaigns with a $100 donation each and want to thank all of our premium members who make this possible!
Dreamfuel is the premier high-level crowd-funding platform specifically designed by and for athletes. They work with each athlete or athletic organization to tap into the community that surrounds them, thereby engaging new fans and supporters along the way.
There is an assumption that all Olympians, Olympic hopefuls and elite athletes have sponsors. This is far from the case, as 85% of Olympic hopefuls’ income is less than 15k USD / year. Dreamfuel’s goal is to provide athletes with a new revenue stream to support their incredible efforts outside of or in addition to the traditional means of sponsorships and governing body stipends.
