Help boy battling rare brain cancer

IAN Weigh Toyota in Yeppoon, with the help of the CQ Classic Car Club, will hold a fundraiser this Saturday to raise money for Yeppoon's young battler Kye Funch.

Ian Weigh manager Brett Terry invites people to come down to see the classic cars on display and grab a bite to eat, with a sausage sizzle and drinks for a gold coin donation.

"All funds we raise will go directly to the Funch family,” Mr Terry said.

Kye is suffering from a diffuse intrinsic pontine glioma, a rare form of tumour that is inoperable and incurable.

"The survival rate is considered less than 1 per cent and 90 per cent will die within 18 months,” Mr Terry said.

"We want to do what we can to help this young lad and his family.”

From 10.30am-1pm on Saturday, February 17, Ian Weigh Toyota Yeppoon will host a classic car show and sausage sizzle.

Mr Terry said people would have the chance to see some of the best classic cars on the Capricorn Coast, hosted by the CQ Classic Car Club.

"This is a great cause with great cars and every little bit will assist this young family in their time of need,” he said.

"If you are unable to come down on the day and join us for some fun, I would like to encourage you to go on Kye's GoFundMe page and donate directly.”

Kye has a Facebook page called Our Brave Boy Kye Funch.

Ian Weigh Toyota Yeppoon is located at 97 John St, Yeppoon.
