In 2020, you helped kids get through the double threats of cancer and covid

You may remember bubbly six-year-old Hailey we told you about before Christmas. She’s one of the many kids who had to deal with the heartbreaking isolation of COVID-19 on top of cancer last year.

During her treatment, Hailey and her mum Leah spent weeks cut off from Hailey’s dad, brother, and baby sister. But you and Redkite never left them. You brought them emotional support and helped ease their financial strain.

Hailey and her family want to say a BIG thank you to all Redkite supporters who sent the great jokes to cheer her up.

It’s an incredible thing to know selfless people are helping your family and saying, you’re not alone.

What a crack-up!

Some of our donors have sent in the jokes after we told them that Hayley loves them and we would love to share them with you today.

Because it ran out of juice

Something between us smells!

You bring hope, comfort and support to families facing their child’s cancer.

Thank you so much.
