Cancer families live one day at a time
Most of us don’t live our lives one day at a time... 24 hours at a time. Sadly, when your child has cancer you have no choice. You are dealing with a diagnosis that makes it impossible to think about the future, because you simply don’t know what the next 24 hours will bring.
Every day in Australia, 3 families will enter this world as they are told “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.
Redkite is a lifeline for families who have a child with cancer providing with real emotional, financial and practical support. Because holding it together when your child’s life is in question can feel impossible.
