Objectives

The charity supports the families of children diagnosed with cancer, by funding emotional and mental health support to family members who have experienced the trauma of childhood cancer.  We create resources about cell and gene therapies like Car-T therapy, and raise awareness about childhood cancer and advocate for access to the kinder approved therapies first.  The charity is named after our son who was treated successfully with a Car-T therapy for Leukeamia aged 1 year old.  We understand first-hand the impact of caring for a child through treatment and know why accessing the right mental health therapy is so important.  

Activities

We undertake fundraisers, talk at events and conferences to raise awareness and donations to support our cause. 
We pay for mental health therapy with accredited therapists for families of children diagnosed with cancer.
