Every six hours, a child or young person in Australia is diagnosed with cancer. For them and their families, life is turned upside down. Cancer treatment can take months or years and parents often have to stop work to care for their sick child while dealing with the expense of living between hospital and home. In addition, long stays in hospital and prolonged treatment can disrupt school, university and work.

Redkite is a national cancer charity that, for over thirty years, has been providing essential support to children and young people (aged up to 24) with cancer and their families. Redkite’s vital support is available from hospital to home: from the devastating moment of diagnosis, throughout long treatment periods and when families return home.

Redkite's essential services include financial assistance, education and career support, support in hospitals through social workers and music therapists, and community-based support including telephone and email counselling and facilitated telegroups.

Receiving no government funding, Redkite relies entirely on the generosity of our supporters to provide these important programs and reach the thousands of families on the cancer journey who need us.

For more information please visit or call 1800 REDKITE (1800 733 548).

All funds donated through this site will be directed to Redkite's cancer journey program.
