Every day in Australia, three families will hear the words: “your child has cancer”. In the daunting and unpredictable experience that follows diagnosis, a child needs as much stability and support from their family as possible. But when families are under pressure, it can be hard to hold it together, not only for their sick child but for the rest of the family and each other.
National charity, Redkite, is a lifeline for families facing childhood cancer. From helping to keep food on the table and the lights on at home, to group or individual counselling when holding it together can feel impossible, Redkite’s practical, emotional and financial support are available for families wherever and whenever they need it.
