My Story

I am taking part in Blackmores Sydney Running Festival 2018 to raise much needed funds for Camp Quality. Over the last 30 years Camp Quality has made a remarkable difference to the lives of children diagnosed with cancer and their families; making their experience of a diagnosis just that little bit easier by keeping them connected, enhancing their life skills and building resilience in a new generation of young Australians. Grounding our services and programs in clinical research showing the physiological and psychological benefits of optimism and resilience was innovative in its time and brought a new way of thinking and working to improving the quality of life for children impacted by cancer and their families. But we face a new challenge as we take stock of our achievements over the last three decades and consider how support a broader population of children impacted by cancer; children who have a parent or primary care giver diagnosed with cancer. Current estimates suggest over 600 children will be newly diagnosed with cancer in Australia in the coming year. A further 10,000 will be living at some stage of their cancer experience. And further, a staggering 40,000 children will have a parent diagnosed with cancer. Add to this the alarming estimate that 1 in 2 Australian adults will be diagnosed with cancer before the age of 85, and you have a society where children under the age of 13 are more than likely trying to come to grips with cancer. Camp Quality is committed to reshaping the mindset of a generation and to creating a more resilient, informed and compassionate young-adult population. You can help by donating to my page. Any amount you can give makes a difference! You can also support me by encouraging others to get involved, too. Please email the link to my page to your friends and family, or share it on social media. Thank you for your generosity and support -- it means a lot to me. Together we can help Camp Quality create the world we want to see.

About my cause: Camp Quality

Our Purpose

Camp Quality supports children impacted by cancer - be that their own diagnosis or the diagnosis of someone they love (parent, carer or sibling). We are there for children and their families from the first experience of cancer through every stage, from treatment to remission and in the case of bereavement - in hospital, at home, at school and away from it all.


Our Vision

Camp Quality believes every Australian child impacted by cancer should have every opportunity to thrive. We do this by providing innovative programs and services to develop life skills and strengthen the wellbeing of children aged 0-13 growing up with cancer, and their families. We are Australia's most reputable children's charity, and the fifth most reputable charity in Australia.
