You Can Walk 4 Cass

In November last year Joe and Gloria Nascimento’s beautiful and courageous daughter Cass lost her battle to Brain Cancer at just 19. Joe is a Director at Global Coffee Solutions and has been involved in coffee for many years, warmly described as a friend to all in the industry. Cass’s amazing mother Gloria is the current recipient of the Barnardos Mother of the Year, nomimated by Jason Carrasco, a young man diagnosed with cancer at 19. He nominated Gloria for the award for being like a second mum to him.
But it is Cass that Joe and Gloria would call amazing. A bright and spirited teenager Cass was diagnosed with brain cancer at 16. She endured crippling headaches, several operations, radiation and chemotherapy. Most of her late teens was spent in a hospital bed and it was then that she realised it would have been easier if she had been in a You Can ward, around other young people who understood. She realized the importance of young people helping each other.
So Cass became involved with Sony Foundation as an ambassador for their You Can youth cancer program. She worked passionately with Sony Foundation to raise awareness of youth cancer and the need to establish specialised youth cancer centres and services.  You Can is based on the power of human connection, and is ensuring young people don’t have to fight their battle alone.
You Can Walk 4 Cass, is a 5km fundraising walk to be held in memory of Cass and we are encouraging everyone to get involved, do the walk and raise funds for Sony Foundation’s You Can Program.

Currently in Australia, turning 16 halves your chances of surviving certain cancers. You Can is raising much-needed funds to establish specialised youth cancer centres around Australia. Too often, 16-25 year olds are falling through a gap in the healthcare system, they are too old for children’s hospitals but too young for the adult system. As a result, they experience lower survival rates and quality of life than their child and adult counterparts.


Sony Foundation is the charitable arm of the Sony Group of Companies. Its aim is to capitalise on the unique qualities of Sony to contribute to the Australian community by assisting youth and fostering their talents. Through fundraising and activities, Sony Foundation is affirming the global unifying vision that drives Sony: Anything you can imagine, you can make real.
Sony Foundation Australia represents a collaboration of companies and individuals working together towards a common goal of achieving better outcomes for the youth of Australia. The foundation is supported by a dedicated and passionate group of corporate partners including some of Australia’s most loved and recognised brands. The Sony companies each contribute to the administrative costs of the foundation, allowing the net proceeds of funds raised to be distributed to our causes.
