The Project’s Carrie Bickmore has raised millions for vital brain cancer research over the years through her foundation, Beanies 4 Brain Cancer. 

Carrie’s Beanies 4 Brain Cancer was launched in 2015, after she dedicated her Gold Logie to her first husband Greg Lange, who died of brain cancer in 2010.

On Wednesday, Australian media personalities – including Lisa Wilkinson, Sam Armytage and Amanda Keller – came together on Instagram to support the foundation, ahead of their new beanie line launch on July 14.

‘Anyone who has ever lost someone will tell you that they may not physically be there but they’ll stay in your life forever,’ she explained.

‘And Ollie [their son Oliver] is so like him in so many ways. I often think, “God, I wish Greg was here so I could ask him how the hell to parent. Surely he’d have some insight”.’ 

Talking to Anh Do on his ABC series Anh’s Brush With Fame in 2018, Carrie revealed Greg’s diagnosis in 2001 shattered her world.

‘It was about a year after we moved to Melbourne. I think I was still 21 or 22 and he was about 25. He had a seizure at home and one thing led to another and they diagnosed him with a brain tumour,’ she tearfully explained.

‘It was just… in your twenties that is just the last thing that you can ever – I didn’t even really know anyone that had cancer, I didn’t know anything about brain cancer, neither did he.

‘It completely threw everything we knew, everything we had planned, everything we thought… it just threw everything on its head.’

Not knowing what the future would hold for them, the couple had their first child together, Oliver, now 12, in 2005 – with Carrie admitting it was ‘probably the greatest thing we ever did together’. 

Carrie also shares two children, Evie and Adelaide, with her partner Chris Walker.
