About Challenge

Challenge is a not-for-profit organisation that supports children and families living with cancer 365 days a year. Their support is free and immediate, helping to lighten the cancer journey by addressing our members' practical, social, and emotional needs.

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 family member – 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.
