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

Over the last year, I've watched two families I know through Facebook have to face the reality of one of their children being diagnosed with cancer. 

Both Faye Holland (from Busy Business Women) and Rachel (from Plot Australia) have had to try to manage the difficult journey of supporting their child, managing their business, and navigating the medical system, while somehow holding it all together still. 

And, honestly, I've felt useless. 

I looked at my own little ones and couldn't imagine hearing those words. 

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.

That’s why I’m setting my alarm to join Redkite for the Sun Up Challenge – to help provide emotional and practical support to families facing childhood cancer.

I’ll be taking action by running every morning at sun up this September, to raise money to support Redkite. It's not much in the scheme of things, but a small gesture for 2 amazing women, their children and their families. 

From day one in the hospital and for as long as it takes, your help ensures that families don't have to face everything 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.
