Maria Defino, 36, was cycling down Bunnerong Road in Pagewood alongside her husband Daniel shortly after 10.30am on Sunday June 9 when they were struck by a hatchback being driven by a 79-year-old epileptic woman.

Bystanders desperately tried to help Maria before paramedics arrived, but she died at the scene. The driver continued for another 150 metres before colliding into a second vehicle.

We don't want Maria's death to be in vain. We want reform. We want to see mandatory driving tests and fitness assessments introduced yearly.

We need your help in order for the NSW Transport Roads and Maritime Services to listen. Stand up and be counted. Help us achieve our goal.

Thank you for your support.
