Personally, and professionally, Michael was so supportive of this industry and his friends. The first to lend a hand, lend an ear, lend his voice. He could brighten any mood with a gag, with his wicked sense of fun, and of course that devilishly handsome smile and charisma that oozed from every pore! Michael’s glass was always half-full, he was the master of gratefulness and a fierce friend, taken too soon.
This concert is presented to you in honour of Michael. In lieu of tickets, we would like to encourage you to make a donation to a memorial fund that has been created in Michael’s memory. Your donation will go towards research and clinical trials for germ cell cancer and other lesser-known cancers at Chris O’Brien Lifehouse where Michael was lovingly cared for during his treatment. Chris O’Brien Lifehouse is the largest not-for-profit cancer clinical trial centre in New South Wales. Research and trials are carried out by the same clinicians who treat patients, shortening the path between discovery and new treatments.
Michael Falzon was our colleague, our provocateur, our motivator, our marshal of excellence, our comedian, and most important of all our dear friend.
Michael, we love you, we miss you and this is for you.
