Friends of Finlay Camp Out 2018

27 October 2018


The Friends of Finlay project was formed by the Higgs family to raise support for Finlay Higgs and his family, help fund further research into childhood cancer, and increase awareness of Hepatoblastoma, by telling the story of Finlay Higgs and his courageous battle.


Finlay Higgs was a happy little blue-eyed, fair-haired, 18-month old boy when his mother, Katey Higgs, discovered an unusual protrusion on his stomach on the Australia Day Weekend of 2015. Doctors found that the lump on his side was caused by a large tumour distending his stomach. They diagnosed him with Stage Four High Risk Hepatoblastoma, which is a very rare form of liver cancer that is most often diagnosed in children under the age of three.


To this day, Finlay continues to bravely fight his cancer. After multiple surgeries and treatments, his diagnosis is now Stage Four High-Risk Refractory Hepatoblastoma, and is a living and breathing miracle to have survived so far.

Diagnosed with Hepatoblastoma

Three year old Finlay Higgs was diagnosed with Hepatoblastoma, a rare form of childhood liver cancer, at just 18 months of age. Since then, he’s spent a large chunk of his life in hospital undergoing a long list of treatments and procedures that are painful but necessary to keep him alive. Watch to learn Finlay’s story and what the Telethon Kids Institute is doing to help children like him with childhood cancer.
