2019 State Awards:

Victorian Father of the Year for 2019.

2019 Victorian Father of the Year - Chris Youngman

Congratulations to Chris Youngman, a 36-year-old dad from the small Victorian town of Drouin, about 100km east of Melbourne. He gave up his job and then his house in order to support his family through the sickness of their son… “We were basically doing split-parenting for quite a bit of the time.” We lived for the moment to eventually have him back home.
Lucas finished his intensive chemotherapy to continue treatment from home. Mr Youngman has also recently been able to return to his regular work with the support of his employer.
The young dad dismissed any notion that his sacrifices were extraordinary.
He was simply carrying on his duty as dad and as a husband.
