Sean Morgan Smith Death

- Help for Beth & Family



Many of you will remember Sean Morgan Smith who was a very active member of BHFC and MWFA. Sean was both a coach to his sons' Ethan and Joshua teams and also a referee with MWFA, mentoring and helping run training sessions. He and his family moved to Perth in early 2014. Sean was tragically killed in a motorbike accident in Perth on 24 June this year. Sean leaves behind his wife Beth, young sons Ethan and Joshua and daughter Laura.

At the time of Sean's death, his wife Beth was overseas in Switzerland undergoing treatment for a very rare form of cancer in her left eye. Beth's cancer is called Adenoid Cystic Carcinoma of the Lacrimal Gland and it is a particularly aggressive form of cancer. To give Beth the best chances of survival, the family opted for treatment in Switzerland. Beth had to remain in Switzerland when Sean died as her radiation treatment is a time fractioned dose. Had Beth returned to Perth, the previous treatment would have been for nothing. After Sean died, her young boys were flown to Switzerland to be with their mum. They will all fly back soon to Perth for Sean's funeral on 01 August.

This stage of Beth's treatment is now complete and she is determined to do all she needs to survive - even more so now that Sean has died. A fundraising page was started to help raise funds for Beth's treatment in Switzerland, the associated high costs and then also further treatment.. Beth's treatment in Switzerland was partially paid by Medical Treatment Oversees Programme, but she will have many ongoing costs to cover herself.

Here is Beth's fundraising page:

Defibrillator for Beacon Hill


Beacon Hill Football Club Recently Purchased a Powerheart G3 Defibrillator for Beacon Hill Oval Match Days funded by our clubs recent trivia night.

In the event of a sudden cardiac arrest, a defibrillator can increase the chance of survival by 5 times. The unit is voice prompted and steps the user through the process. Training will be provided plus a short video on instruction to team managers.

A number of clubs such as Avalon, Pittwater and Forest have also purchased defibrillators. We are hopeful that more clubs will also invest in units for their home grounds. The photo above is the Beacon Hill and Avalon Over 45's who were the 1st teams to have the Defibrillator on hand for match day.

3rd Annual Cerebral Palsy Cup




Beacon Hill and Mosman Played their 3rd Annual Cerebral Palsy Cup (s) in July.

This year the Cup was expanded across two Grade's, Division 7 & 8. All players Donate $10, and also come together post match for a joint BBQ.

Both games were played in good spirit with Beacon hanging onto the Cup until our next meeting. We raised $520 for the Cerebral Palsy Alliance based at Allambie Heights.

More importantly we drive awareness of Cerebral Palsy and the wonderful work the CPA do for the clients and our community. In the Division 8 Game, we were fortunate to have Nicholas Esposito on hand to present the Cup.
