Two scouts in the Hunter region have been recognised for their efforts in raising funds for cancer treatment. Jacinta Gomez, 15, has collected $50,000 for John Hunter Children's Hospital while battling leukemia. Cub scout Megan Visser's project "Candles for Cancer" was inspired by the loss of her friend to the disease earlier this year.
