In mid 2018 Connor’s Grandmother was diagnosed with a tumor on her jaw that required radiotherapy treatment. At around the same time, Connor was approached by Dr. Sean Geoghegan, State Director of Radiation Oncology Medical Physics at the Royal Adelaide Hospital, to take part in a project to design and create a Lego model of a Linear Accelerator (Linac) for children who are about to undergo treatment for cancer to build, play with, and reduce any anxiety they have for the treatment. This model features a hand crank for turning the gantry, as well as the ability to rotate the bed. The set includes two minifigures, one representing a health professional, and one patient, as well as a 3D printed mask.
$15 from each set is donated to the ACPSEM – Better Healthcare Technology Foundation.
