Support my Sun Up Challenge for families of children with cancer.

When a family is told their child has cancer, what they hear is “your child might die”. Every day in Australia, three families hear those words. Not every child will die, but every family who faces childhood cancer is changed forever. Cancer puts families under enormous pressure. It can feel like it’s impossible to hold it together.

Our family was supported by Redkite in 2018 when our son Oliver was diagnosed with Burkitts Lymphoma just a few days before his 5th birthday. After enduring intensive treatment he is now cancer free.

That's why we are joining Redkite in the Sun Up challenge – to help provide emotional and practical support to other families facing childhood cancer.

I'll be taking action by running, strolling or rolling while the sun is up this August, to raise money that will help families pay the bills, access emotional support, and more. From day one in the hospital and for as long as it takes, your help ensures that families don’t have to face their child’s cancer diagnosis alone.

Please support me by making a tax-deductible donation to my challenge. Your generosity will make sure that Redkite can provide even more families facing childhood cancer practical and emotional support and care.

I am in awe of you guys and the strength of your family. I know we never were able to provide practical help while you were going through everything with Oliver. I am so glad that places like RedKite exist that offered the support that we didn't know how to give. Love you, Love Kate
