About Team Adem

Buderim teenager, Adem Crosby was diagnosed with an aggressive form of leukaemia in February 2011 at the age of 17.

Adem was an inspirational young man whose battle with leukaemia has touched the hearts of many people. Even though suffering great adversity, he used his illness and experiences to inspire and help others.As Adem’s condition declined, his desire to make a difference certainly didn’t. Sadly Adem passed away in May 2013, but his wish to help others lives on through the charity he started – Team Adem

Since 2011, Team Adem has grown to become an established and respected Sunshine Coast charity and is making a profound difference to many lives. Team Adem continues to help and support organisations that care for patients, families and seriously ill children affected by a cancer or haematological diagnosis.

Team Adem’s most significant achievement however, is its ever-growing blood donation community, which is making a lifesaving difference to over 1200 Australian lives every month. Having received over 350 blood product transfusions himself, it was Adem’s wish for the Team Adem Blood Donation Community to grow and help thousands of lives each and every year.

Team Adem is a not-for-profit charity and is run by a dedicated team  headed by the Crosby family. We invite as many people as possible to join the Team Adem family and help us help others. Please consider supporting Team Adem by registering with our blood donation team, following Team Adem on Facebook or Instagram, attending our events or making a donation. All support is truly appreciated. To see how Team Adem is making a difference click here .

“With a little effort from all of us – we have such potential to make a big difference in the lives of so many”…… Adem Crosby 2012
