About In Memory of Brianna Johnsen


Support Brianna’s dad, Colin, and fellow trekkers as they experience the Kokoda Track in the footsteps of our forefathers. All donations will support the Starlight programs that Brianna enjoyed so much.

When you make a donation, please add “Kokoda” to the comment field if you would like your generosity attributed to this exciting adventure.


We remember our Brianna for her cheeky personality, her infectious smile and a laugh she used often. We remember her entrepreneurial spirit, her kindness and the way she put her heart and soul into everything she was passionate about. But most of all, we remember the strength and courage Brianna showed during her fight.

Now at peace, Brianna’s journey has come to an end, but it is our wish to continue her legacy. During Brianna’s treatment in hospital, Captain Starlight was always a welcome distraction and brought her so much joy. In those moments with the Captains, she would laugh, joke around and could just be a kid.

In Brianna’s memory, we are raising funds that will go towards Captain Starlight learning and development, so that more kids just like Brianna can experience the impact of this incredible program. With this legacy, Brianna’s memory will live on and she will continue to give to others just as she did in life.

In 2018 we raised an incredible $39,134 – a goal achieved through the kindness and generosity of Brianna’s friends and family.

Our Goal is to raise a minimum of $30K p.a. to sponsor the Captain Starlight Training Program and additional funds for Starlight Foundation programs to help kids shine bright. We would like to thank all of those who have supported Brianna’s cause, as we look forward to another year of achieving amazing things in Brianna’s memory.

About Starlight Children's Foundation

Starlight's mission is "To brighten the lives of seriously ill children and their families".

Because sick kids are still kids at heart...

When a once-bright life becomes dulled by needles, hospital visits and painful treatments, Starlight helps sick kids forget their illness and re-discover the joy of childhood.

We know there's more to treatment than medicine. That's why since 1988, we've partnered with Australian health professionals to develop programs based on positive psychology principles that support the 'total care' of our children and teens.

Like the young people in our care, we are distinctly Australian. Our unique programs are the result of extensive research and respond to the specific needs of Aussie kids and teens.

We know what kids and their families are facing when serious illness or injury consumes their lives.

We disrupt the relentless cycle of pain and trauma and offer a welcome break so that sick kids can simply be kids.

We believe fun fights fear and wins every time.
