Thanks for your support of “Fui”

By now, you’ll have heard that James “Fui” Moir has recently been diagnosed with an aggressive form of cancer (sarcoma) and received his first chemotherapy treatment on Thursday.

Fui was based in Port Macquarie since the start of 2019, and was about to start a new role in the Hunter under the AFL’s new structure when he got the distressing diagnosis. He’s spent the past three weeks laid up in Nepean Hospital while his medical team searched for a diagnosis and is now underway with his treatment.

Fui played for the Port Macquarie Magpies footy club last season and the club has come out in full force to offer him their support, starting a Go Fund Me page to help with his medical costs that has already raised over $17,000 in just four days.

To say that the community’s support has touched Fui is an understatement. His message to everyone who’s supported him is one of complete gratitude.

“You are all amazing.

“I am so overwhelmed by your generosity & haven’t stopped crying over the last few days because its very hard to fathom how amazing everyone is being to us thus far.

“Just a big thank you from me and my girl to you all. You are making this treatment & chemo all the more easier with your ongoing support.”

He’s got a fantastic support network around him in mum Leianne, dad Darren, brother Jack, and girlfriend Sarah, but the support he’s receiving from his North Coast footy family is also critical to his wellbeing as he undertakes this massive fight.

Huge thanks to the Port Macquarie Magpies footy club for initiating the Go Fund Me page, and to everyone who’s shown Fui their support through donations and messages.
