In July 2016, at the age of 18 months old, a young girl was diagnosed with cancer, Neuroblastoma Stage 4. Since, she has been undergoing intense treatment at Lady Cilento Children’s Hospital. The entire treatment plan lasts 18~24 months with frequent prolonged hospital stays (generally in isolation due to compromised immune system needed to minimise exposure to any potential infections).
This has resulted in both parents having to give up their jobs to be full-time carers’ splitting 12 hour shifts at the hospital in isolation with their child. Due to the type of cancer, the length of time it has been going on, and the inability to bring in any income, the family is going through challenging times financially.
We are hoping, through funds raised, we will be able to provide some relief from the financial distress they have been going through, even if it is brief...
In addition to all funds going to this young family in need, every donation receives tickets to go into the draw to win some amazing prizes (see poster above)!
