How long have you been involved with Fight Cancer Foundation?
We have been involved for about 10 years.
What do you do for Fight Cancer Foundation?
We support families who tell their story at Red Ball Melbourne by offering our apartment in Hamilton Island to them. The families are offered a weeks’ worth of accommodation to give them a break after what has usually been a very emotional and stressful time.
We have also previously donated nights’ accommodation at our apartment as a silent auction item.
How did you become involved?
We first become involved through our cousin Ida who worked for Fight Cancer Foundation. We attended Red Ball Melbourne and were so moved by the family story that we felt we had to help.
We thought that the help offered by Fight Cancer Foundation was giving those wonderful, strong people hope and real support.
Why do you choose to support Fight Cancer Foundation?
It’s all about the kids and the wonderful parents, family and friends who are going through a difficult time and need support and hope. We believe Fight Cancer Foundation offer that with the wonderful programs, including accommodation, education and research.
