Six years ago, Scott Dureau was rocked by the news that he needed brain surgery to remove a tumour from behind his eye and required annual MRI scans to ensure the cancer had not returned. In late 2018, Scott attended a routine scan which revealed that the now 32-year-old father of two’s cancer had returned. The following day, Scott underwent emergency surgery to remove the six tumours on his brain. Post-operation, following multiple tests, the family received another blow – the cancer had spread to Scott’s liver.
Scott and his young family are an integral part of our rugby league family and are in immediate need of our assistance and support as they face adversity. Scott is approaching this challenge with the same attitude he took to the footy field. He is demonstrating great courage and positivity in what is a very difficult time.
To support Scott and his family, the Men of League Foundation is hosting Scott’s Night of Knights on Friday 5 April 2019. Supported by the Newcastle Knights, this fundraising event will raise much needed funds for the Dureau family.
