Why I am dancing for sick kids this May <3

In 2015 I was diagnosed with an incurable condition, and although I have been fortunate to not need the RMHC services during my admissions, I know many others haven't been as fortunate.

Since my diagnosis, I’ve met many people through hospital that utilise the Ronald McDonald House and they always speak of how amazing it is for them, and I really want to help support that. Throughout national families week, I will be dancing for an hour or more per day on top of work, medical and school commitments.

After losing my best friend in 2019 due to a simple illness impacting her medical condition, I wish to do anything to make a family's last moments special and memorable.

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.

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
