“Until you have endured your child’s cancer, you can’t appreciate what the Coles Redkite partnership makes possible.”

Emma, mother of Harrison diagnosed with cancer aged 13

“The truth is, our lives have been turned upside down since we discovered Bella has cancer. Now when I’m at my local Coles and I see they are fundraising for Redkite, I want to run around the store telling everyone how much we value their support. It really means the world to us.”

Ritchie, father of Bella diagnosed with cancer aged 4

“Very many thanks for your unexpected and much needed gift of a $100 voucher. I was trying to keep this week’s grocery money for Christmas presents, so this was a real surprise and blessing.”
