Our story

A lifeline for
families facing
childhood cancer

For more than 35 years, we’ve been helping families hold it together when the child they love has cancer.

When a child is diagnosed with cancer, it affects the whole family.

And family is everything. No matter how you define it, no one can put a value on the love a family shares and the strength you can find within it.

Every day in Australia, 3 families will hear the words: “your child has cancer”. In the daunting and unpredictable experience that follows diagnosis, a child needs as much stability and support from their family as possible. But when families are under pressure, it can be hard to hold it together, not only for their sick child but for the rest of the family and each other.

Redkite is there with real emotional, financial and practical support for families who have a child with cancer (aged 18 and under). Because holding it together when your child’s life is in question can feel impossible.
