Support our Sun Up Challenge for families of children with cancer - like ours!

Our daughter Charli was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia in May 2020 aged just 9, and the last 15 months have been incredibly tough.Charli has endured almost a year of intensive chemotherapy with serious side effects that have put her in a wheelchair as well as being hospitalised more times that we care to remember.


She still has another 9 months of treatment to go as well as coming to terms with all that has happened to her since the fateful day we learned she had cancer. 


It's been a long and arduous journey that you wouldn't wish on your worst enemy, and yet every time we're in hospital we meet the most amazing children and their beautiful families who are having to fight this cruel disease... it's not fair and there is still so much more work to be done to find a cure for Leukemia and childhood cancer.


Thankfully we have had the support of RedKite since Charli was diagnosed, and are incredibly grateful for the financial and emotional support they have given us from the very first week she was hospitalised.


Childhood cancer places an enormous toll on ALL members of a family, and the services RedKite provide go a long way in helping families like ours get through the gruelling marathon ahead of them.  


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 we’re setting our alarms to join Redkite for the Sun Up Challenge – to help provide emotional and practical support to families  like ours facing childhood cancer.


We’ll be taking action by running, walking and rolling every day in September, to raise money that will help families pay the bills, access emotional support, and more. From day one in hospital and for as long as it takes, your support ensures that families don’t have to face their child's cancer diagnosis alone.


Your generosity will make sure that Redkite can provide even more families like ours - facing childhood cancer - practical and emotional support and care.

Please sponsor us if you can and if you would like to get involved us in this challenge (and do something super positive in lockdown!) please join the 'Shine Like Charli' team and help us make a positive impact in the world of childhood cancer.


Thank you so much for your support,

Faye, Will, Charli & Chloe

Hey Faye, We worked together some time ago. Not sure you would even remember me, but I do have you on Facebook, and I have see Charli’s stories your posting for some time now. Always wanted to contribute something for the little munchkin as a sign of her (and your) strength. Just didn’t know how, till now :-)
