When they’re first diagnosed

Given at hospital

I love my Redkite bag. It makes me feel that I am not alone when I see another family with the same bag. It really helps me to start a conversation and talk to people who understands what I am going through.

We know a cancer diagnosis can be sudden and that families often find themselves in hospital with little or no time to prepare. Our Red Bags are packed full of the things you might not think of when you’re rushing out the door to hospital. They’re a big bag of love to carry with you for as long as you need it.

Redkite’s Red Bag is proudly supported by Country Road.
