Glenn Dickson, 25, lost his leg and came within 60 seconds of bleeding to death, after being attacked by a shark while on a fishing trip with mates at of Hinchinbrook island in north QLD in February 2017.

This dedicated father of two beautiful children is a loving partner to pregnant fiancée Jessie-Lee, who expecting their third child in June 2017.

The Muay Thai fighter's quick-thinking friends were credited with saving his life after dragging him from the water and applying a tourniquet, contacting emergency services and getting him to shore.


WHY DONATE? To be able to take this financial burden off of this wonderful family as they prepare to welcome their third child would help in some ways ease the pain of watching the man they love tackle the biggest emotional and physical hurdle of his life.

Glenn was the family breadwinner, and whilst Glenn recovers (which will not be an easy road ahead), the bills still come flowing in (rent/car payments/insurances/food & fuel etc) as well as the additional cost associated with his rehabilitation.

Please rally together to show support for a man that dedicates his life to helping others.

All funds donated will be released to Jessie Lee and Glenn to aid his recovery.
