Prousty has always been a man that does things his own way. In a time when most families were having less children, he was having more - six to be precise. When everyone else was slaving away at their jobs, Prousty was was taking his Missus and the six kids on year long camping holidays around Australia. So 15 months ago when he received a diagnosis of terminal brain cancer with 90% of suffers succumbing to the disease within 3 to 12 months of diagnosis, Prousty was like “Nup!”.
In true Prousty fashion, he said a big F*** You to Darryl (that’s what he named his tumor) and stubbornly refused to give in to this insidious disease. Through surgeries and treatment, Prousty has continued his bush poetry, hosting gigs around the country. He’s there for every cross country and athletics carnival for the grandkids, with his signature whistle letting the little ones know that Grampy is there watching.
And last week he achieved a feat that seemed impossible 15 months ago - Prousty turned the big 60 and earned himself his senior citizens card. His birthday bash was a big affair at his son Luke’s cafe/restaurant The Tame Fox. Prousty had friends there from high school, work and of course touch footy. Friends and family travelled from all over Australia to celebrate with Prousty. Because Prousty lives big and loves fiercely. And he sets a mighty fine example of how good a marriage and family can be.
Happy birthday Prousty.
