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.
Challenge Ball Committee
This annual fundraising event is driven and steered by our Challenge Ball Committee.
We are honoured to have a committee of dedicated and passionate members who work tirelessly to create a unique opportunity to unite, reflect and celebrate. It brings our families together and solidifies the connection and love that makes up our community of different families.
For 30 years, this event has raised much-needed funds to bring a little relief throughout the cancer journey, from diagnosis, through treatment and beyond. From the moments that brighten a day to surf camps, holidays, massages and parent support, Challenge services support the child, their siblings and parents, both in and out of the hospital.
