Carrie Bickmore, Australia's silver screen star gave a moving speech at the Logie awards, the highest television award in Australia.

She wore a blue beanie after winning the coveted Gold Logie award and called on the public to support those suffering from brain cancer or caring for someone who is suffering.


The Project's presenter, lost her husband to brain cancer in 2010. "Everyone thinks it is this rare form of cancer. It is not. It kills more people under 40 than any other cancer. It kills more kids than any other disease. In 2010, my husband, Greg, was one of the unlucky ones," Bickmore told the audience.

"Over 10 years, I watched him suffer multiple seizures a day, lose feeling down one side of his body, have his little three-year-old have to push him around in a wheelchair because he couldn't walk anymore."

She encouraged morning show hosts to wear a beanie on their heads and the stars obliged, with multiple Australian TV personalities wearing a beanie for brain cancer on their shows.
