Help Mummy's Wish Support Families Dealing with Cancer

22 November 2013

Each day, 13 Australian families will receive the devastating news that mum has cancer.  Mummy's Wish is a not for profit organisation assisting families with young children cope and continue their lives with as much normalcy as possible.

Mummy's Wish aims to provide support for these families by providing practical assistance. Services on offer include cleaning, financial assistance, provision of meals, hospital parking assistance, advice on how to share news of terminal illness to young children and much more. Mummy's Wish understands that a cancer diagnosis can turn lives upside down in just a few days, and aims to start providing assistance in as little time as possible.

In addition to these immediate and practical services, Mummy's Wish is also dedicated to ensuring these families are supported emotionally as well. This is done through providing a support system and initiatives such as the free hire of iPads, so that mums can stay connected with their families during treatment, memory making activities for mums with a terminal diagnosis & the provision of special bears for the children in these families. These bears contain an audio chip loaded with mum's voice to act as a source of comfort for these children.  

In order to keep supporting these families, Mummy's Wish has launched their fundraising campaign for 2013. The "Christmas Comfort Bear Campaign" involves a $40.00 purchase of two voice recordable Mummy's Wish Talking Teddy Bears: one for the child in your life and another for the child of a mum with cancer. Other ways to donate:

Mummy's Wish currently operates in Queensland and New South Wales, and hopes to have a national footprint by 2016 to help as many Australian families as possible.
