A ‘family‘ member of the Kogarah days was extremely ill and did not make the rest of the week.

Richard ‘Dicki’ Martin. Approximately 4 weeks ago, was not feeling well and was diagnosed with Stage 4 Stomach cancer and liver cancer. Dick is at home in palliative care.

You may all remember he went to the mounted unit, and is still attached to the State Planning Unit.

Peter IRBY, was a serving member of the NSW Police Force between 03/05/2002 and the 02/02/2012 where he attained the rank of Senior Constable.  Peter performed general duties at Marrickville, Transit Police and Tuggerah Lakes Local Area Command before being stationed at Richmond Local Area Command between 09/09/2007 and the 02/02/2012 where he performed duties at Nimbin Police Station.

Peter passed away in hospital on the 31/10/2018 after a lengthy but valiant fight with cancer.  Peter was only 40 years old and had been a proud Police officer. He leaves behind his wife, Diona, their three young children, Henry, Darcy & Milah.

One of Peter’s last wishes was for Diona and the children to go to Disneyland.  This is a very small wish for a man who dedicated himself to serving the people of NSW.  It is hoped that we can raise some funds to assist Diona and their children at this difficult time.

https://thepeterirbylegacyfundraiser.gofundraise.com.au/

Today we have the melancholy honour of launching the Peter Irby Fundraiser. Senior Constable Peter Irby served in the NSW Police Force for ten years. At the age of just 40 he lost his lengthy battle with cancer, leaving behind his wife and three young children. One of his final wishes was for his family to go to Disneyland in California, and this fundraiser seeks to help with that. Please help if you can, and please help spread the word: http://bit.ly/peterirby

Peter attended Mullumbimby High School between 1990 – 1996 to Year 12.
In September 2014 he did the Introduction to Return to Work Co-ordinator Course.
In April 2015 he did the Cert IV training and Assessment for Diploma of work, health and safety.
In March 2015 he was a Student at the Southern Cross University.

‘PETE IRBY – WHAT A TOP BLOKE ‘– If I had a dollar for every time I heard that comment made!!  For all of us who love and adore him, Pete is that cheerful, loyal, fun loving guy who can always put a smile on your face with his wicked sense of humour!
Pete and his partner in crime Diona, have been married for over 12 years. Together they are raising the most wonderful little humans, Henry (11), Darcy (9) and Milah (7). Pete is the most amazing, devoted and loving father.
Pete has devoted his professional life to making a difference in the community and proudly served as a police officer attached to Marrickville LAC, Tuggerah Lakes LAC and Richmond LAC. It is a challenging environment and as his former Supervisor Mark said, “I was honoured to be his supervisor for several years of his service”. Pete is an outgoing and positive person with a strong desire to perform any role to the best of his ability. His perfectionist nature, empathy and willingness to help others selflessly are character traits we all admire in him. In keeping with Pete’s desire to help out his community, he is currently studying to be a nurse.
DIAGNOSIS
On Wednesday 7th of March 2018, Diona and Pete were given the heartbreaking news Pete was diagnosed with Bowel Cancer. When he was diagnosed, Pete was also informed that the cancer had spread through to his Liver. Since then a PET scan has identified that the cancer has shown up in his colon as well.  When cancer cells break away from the primary tumour in the bowel, they can travel around in the blood stream or in lymph fluid. There is a common pattern in the way that bowel cancer spreads in the body. The name given to this kind of bowel cancer is ‘metastatic’ and each new area of growth away from the primary tumour is known as a ‘metastasis’

Pete has endured numerous tests and procedures over the past week to ascertain what the best course of action is, along with his team of specialists.  Pete will start chemo next week.

PURPOSE OF THIS PAGE

This go fund me page has been created to help Pete and Dee pay the mounting Medical bills that will come their way.  After helping so many people professionally and personally it is fitting his colleagues, friends and community ‘have his back’ in this time of need.

This diagnosis has rocked all of Pete’s friends and family to our core. As Pete’s mate Fyshy said, “Last Thursday morning I woke to the news that my best mate had this hideous disease, absolutely broke my heart. Pete Irby is not my best mate he is my brother that’s how close we are, we were inseparable growing up, Pete’s family give us the nickname Fysh n Chips.

This is going to be a very long and tough journey for Pete and his beautiful family, and I hope we can help them all as much as we possibly can. There are so many things I can say about Pete, but the biggest thing is he needs each and everyone’s support in this shit time. “

Pete is determined to beat this hideous disease. Let’s get behind Pete and his family and try to ease some of the financial pressure for them.

Any contribution you can make is greatly appreciated.  Please keep Pete and his family in your thoughts as he fights this insidious disease.

Sergeant Darren Jones is a serving member of the NSW Police Force based at Parramatta Local Area Command.

Darren was diagnosed with Stage 3 Bowel Cancer in June 2015 which he successfully treated with Chemotherapy. He was in remission in August of 2016 when Doctors found metastasised cells in Darren’s abdomen. He underwent further Chemotherapy and all was looking good until mid-February 2017, when he received a Stage 4 Liver Cancer diagnosis.

Darren and Trish, also a serving member of the NSW Police Force have twin 11-year olds, a boy and a girl, Ty and Charli. Ever since Darren and Trish had their children, they have dreamt of being able to take their family on a holiday to Disneyland. A goal that now seems more pressing to create special memories for the children, and to give the family some precious time away together.

With the assistance of NSW Police Legacy, Darren’s mates and colleagues are fundraising to support Darren with his medical expenses, and to give the family their dream holiday.

Trevor’s cancer should be deemed a HOD from a rescue response incident in Blacktown to a chemical spill. Trevor Watkins was a Police Rescue Operator who attended the same incident as
Ronald Walter McGOWN.   Ron died on the 10 June 1998 within 3 months of being diagnosed with Liver Cancer.

Ron IS mentioned on the Police Wall of Remembrance but Trevor is NOT mentioned on the same wall.

Doctors are reported to have linked the two Police and their disease to the chemical spill event.
