Team Adem

Started in 2011, Team Adem is the inspirational legacy of Sunshine Coast teenager Adem Crosby.

Diagnosed with an aggressive form of Leukaemia at the age of 17 - Adem’s battle touched the hearts of many and during his two and a half year treatment; he received more than 350 blood and blood product transfusions.

Adem Crosby

Spending so many hours in oncology wards, the Crosby family quickly came to realise the important role blood donations play in the lives of cancer patients.  Adem’s wish was to use his experience to inspire the community to help other patients in need.

With a goal to help others and raise awareness about the important and life-saving difference blood donations make – Team Adem joined Red25, the Australian Red Cross Blood Services Group Donation Program.

Since 2013, more than 30 organisations have joined their ‘Blood Donation Community’ and together they have made over 16,000 blood donations & helped more than 50,000 patients in need.

They are ranked third highest in Australia, for their contribution to the Blood Service’s Red25 group donation program and  in 2017 they have set themselves an ambitious goal, to help 15,000 patients.

With strong community support, Team Adem and the Crosby family won’t stop there.  Their life-changing goal is to grow each year and continue to inspire others.
