How we help

Following a child’s diagnosis, life changes significantly. Families begin a journey of uncharted territory, where they learn to adapt to a ‘new normal’ of life with cancer. Adjusting to these changes is difficult and takes its toll on every member of the family – patient, parent, and sibling(s).

This is where Challenge steps in. Sometimes you do not know what it is you need until someone shows you.

Challenge aims to manage the impact of a cancer diagnosis by addressing the emotional, social, and practical needs of your family. Whether it is help at home or a weekend away, we tailor our services to meet the requirements of each individual within the family unit.

“I have seen first-hand the positive effect the organisation has on its members. It takes the support of many to ensure Challenge delivers its continual support to children and families, and it is humbling to play a role in the workings of this wonderful organisation.”

Robert is one of Challenge’s longest-standing Ambassadors having joined the organisation in 1992.

From visiting children in the hospital to hosting his own Golf Day and Gala Dinner in honour of Challenge, Robert has always been a loyal and passionate member of our community. Through his connections with the golfing fraternity, Robert’s ambassadorship has helped raise in excess of $20 million for Challenge.

Robert is an extraordinary friend of Challenge and we are grateful for his unwavering support.
