Rebel look after one of their own

Staff Writer

Rebel Media operates the Breeze FM and Rebel FM networks in Queensland, based on the Gold Coast.

Breeze FM Breakfast Announcer Bruce Neels was diagnosed with Parkinson's Disease several years ago, and the network is supporting him by raising awareness and funding for research into the disease.

General Manager of Rebel Media, Cheryl Jowitt (right), commented:

"Bruce, only recently, decided to make public his plight to raise awareness of Parkinson’s Disease and with his blessing we decided that, as a company, we needed to do more."

"Radio is an amazing media. We’re invited into peoples homes and lives daily and if we in some small way can make a difference, I believe that it is our responsibility to try. The only way we can really help Bruce and other Parkinson’s sufferers is to raise awareness of the disease and hopefully raise funds for research into funding a cure."

Rebel Media has donated $100,000 worth of airtime across the network to drive donations in Queensland, and are promoting various fundraising opportunities that they will create, and that the 'Shake It Up' foundation is running.

'Shake It Up' is a foundation that was setup to specifically support those who suffer from Parkinson's Disease.

Jowitt said that Bruce Neels (left) is presently off the air at Breeze FM, but intends to return to the team;

"Our challenge is to get Bruce back on air, he has recently been hospitalised for medical evaluation, and make sure that he continues to be a part of our team for as long as he can be."
