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.
