Peter & Kay Auden’s son, Nick, is in a very public battle with stage 4 Melanoma. Nick has received support from celebrities like Ricky Gervais, recently featured in a front page article in Melbourne’s Age newspaper and has a dedicated website – www.savelockysdad.com Our picture shows Nick's son Locky.

Nick and his family are seeking access to an experimental drug that it is hoped will improve his chances of beating cancer. The drug has been denied so far due to its experimental nature but it is believed that sufficient pressure on the drug company may succeed in Nick gaining access on compassionate grounds. An online petition had 125,000 signatures at the time of writing this article.
