If your child had cancer, and you had to relocate your entire family over 500kms for treatment -
how would you cope?
Please help support country kids with cancer during the most challenging time of their lives.
Relocating your entire family while your child undergoes lifesaving cancer treatment in Adelaide can be devastating.
But your support means it doesn't have to be.
Imagine your child is diagnosed with cancer.
... you have to move to Adelaide for 12 months while your child undergoes lifesaving cancer treatment
... you lose your support network of family, friends and community
... the stress of giving up your job
... your other children will need to move to a new school, taken away from their friends, sports and even their pets.
Imagine the financial hardship - the isolation.
Now imagine there is a safe place for you and your family to call home during this time
... it's close to the hospital
... it's fully maintained
Imagine it's free
The Childhood Cancer Association is here to help.
At the Michael Rice Units in Prospect, we provide free accommodation and support to families who must relocate to Adelaide for their child's cancer treatment.
To provide this support we need to raise $60,000.
Your donation will help a country family for as long as it takes to support their child battling this life threatening disease.
We can't continue to provide this support without your generous donation.
