Cancer can happen to any family at any time. In Australia, a child or young person is diagnosed with cancer every six hours. They can face three years’ treatment - turning life upside down for them and their families.
Cancer means costs often mount as a parent often stops work to be at their child’s bedside. Young people living independently face even greater pressure. This comes at a time when families are often separated between hospital and home. Cancer can also disrupt a child or young person’s education, with treatment lasting up to three years.
For families who are facing a child or young person’s cancer, a donation to Redkite can offer something money can’t buy - time. Your support will help keep food on the table for 50 families this month to ensure parents are where they need to be - by the bedside of their sick child. “ I can tell you that the days you guys give families mean much more than the value of the bill you paid” - Hospital Social Worker
