Stuart Diver was the sole survivor of the 1997 Thredbo landslide that killed 18 people including his wife Sally. In 2003 Stuart remarried and tragedy struck again when his wife Rosanna was diagnosed with breast cancer. Rosanna died in 2015. Stuart currently lives in Thredbo with his 6 year old daughter Alessia.
Stuart speaks from the heart about his survival and the challenges he faced and still faces. He is passionate about many things in life and finds inspiration in looking for solutions to the issues that are confronting our world today.
Darren Skuse was 12 years old when first diagnosed with cancer in December 1996. Because of the cancer and its subsequent complications he was given a tough decision to make as a teenager, which led to the amputation of his right leg in December 1999. Darren is a passionate adventure seeker, a wold class wheelchair basketball athlete, triathlete and mountain bike racer and in his spare time loves to ride motorbikes both on and off road. Darren is a Snowy Ride regular helping with the Snowy Hydro Family Program which brings families with children undergoing cancer treatment for an extra special Snowy Ride weekend.
