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

I'm challenging myself to walk 300kms in September for families facing childhood cancer. 

I work in Redkite and I see first hand the impact donations have on these families and just how critical this support is.

Three families hear the words "your child has cancer" each day in Australia. Every family who faces childhood cancer is changed forever and their world is turned upside down. It's likely that one or both parents will need to give up work to be by their sick child's bedside and this adds enormous financial pressure, on top of everything else.  It can feel like it’s impossible to hold it together.

Money raised will help families in many ways:

🏡Financial assistance which includes - food vouchers, fuel vouchers, paying utility or rent costs, education grants and sadly, paying funeral costs. Covering these essential costs means putting food on the table and keeping the lights on at home. 

❤️Access mental health support through our Redkite in hospital social workers, counsellors who wrap families in support and care, and connect groups for people to share with others that understand what they're going through.

🎶Additional services such as music therapy for pain and stress management, book club to help families learn and talk about cancer, and practical information support to help manage the confusing and stressful cancer journey.

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, financial and emotional support and care.

Thanks,

Niamh
