Make a move and support my Dance For Sick Kids!

When a child is injured, or diagnosed with a serious illness, it affects the whole family. Lives can be turned upside down, and it puts families under enormous pressure. For many families, it can feel like it’s impossible to hold it together.

That’s why I’m joining Ronald McDonald House Charities to Dance For Sick Kids this year.

I’ll be making a move every day for 7 days, to raise money that will help families stay in a home-away-from-home, access emotional and financial support, and more. From day one in the hospital and for as long as it takes,  your help ensures that families don’t have to navigate the challenges of illness or injury alone.

Please support me by making a tax-deductible donation to my challenge. Your generosity will make sure that Ronald McDonald House Charities can support even more families with a seriously ill or injured child when they need it most.

My Dance Diary

My Why....

Monday 7th Mar
Why am I choosing to fundraise for Dance for Sick Kids?

June 8th 2020, my baby brother Kove was born 2.5wks early via induction due to bleeding. This was the day before my 7th birthday and my mum's 39th birthday. Not only wasn't I allowed to meet my new baby brother due to Covid, he was also admitted into RMH at GCUH due to his very low birth weight. He only weighed 2kgs!

What was meant to be a special day for us all the day before my mum and I's special day, was actually upsetting. My brothers and I had always welcomed our baby brothers home the day they were born so this really impacted our family and our early moments to bond with our newest addition to our family. 

Although it was a very unsettling time, we knew mum and baby Kove were in the hands of experienced specialists, and we were so lucky they were able to stay at the RMH for the 6 days Kove needed special care.

We can not thank RMH more for their services and their home-away-from-home facilities, helping so many families like ours in a time that is so uncertain. Without your donations, these services and facilities would not be available to families like ours. 

Thank you so much in advance for your love and care, and mostly for your donations.

MEET ANUNTA

At just 11 years old, Anunta was 100km from home, and learned that the cyst on her ankle was, in fact, a cancerous sarcoma. 

With no clothes, and nowhere to stay, Anunta’s parents, Doungnead and Anthony, didn’t know what to do. 

Thankfully, Ronald McDonald House Charities were able to provide a room for the family. When Anunta started chemotherapy, Doungnead was able to provide a taste of home, cooking fresh meals in their own little kitchen while the family focussed all their attention on her treatment.


“Being in a place where everyone cares about you, and is there for you, was so special. It became our second home” Anunta's Mum, Doungnead
