Support a family of a seriously ill child - $50
Your very special gift of $50 will help Very Special continue our vital work supporting families through their experience of caring for children with life-threatening illnesses, from diagnosis through to recovery or bereavement.
The birth of a child is one of life’s miracles. All parents imagine and dream of what their child may become. But when they are told that their child has an illness that threatens their young life, all those hopes and dreams can go out the window…
Very Special Kids supports more than 770 families with a seriously ill child. Sadly many of the children we support will not reach adulthood. Support services include counselling, sibling support, bereavement support, trained family support volunteers and care at Very Special Kids House – Victoria’s only & Australia’s first hospice for children (offering respite & end-of-life care)
Our vision is that all families of children with life-threatening illnesses are able to access quality services that meet their needs.
