I'm fundraising for...Young Aussie's With Cancer

Hi, I'm Emma!

As General Manager at Sony Foundation, a regular part of my day to day is meeting many of the young people and their families that we support through our youth cancer accommodation program, You Can Stay. 

Every day I am inspired by the resilience and commitment of each of these young people to climb over insurmountable challenges they are faced with.

I'm doing this for them and know the funds I raise will make a difference to their experience.

Every $100 raised funds 1 night of emergency accommodation in Sony Foundation's You Can Stay program.

You Can Stay provides regional and rural cancer patients aged 15 - 25 years, a self-contained apartment in the city for the duration of their cancer treatment. Can you imagine having to leave your home, family and friends and face cancer treatment in the city. For many in our regional areas this is a harsh reality.

You Can Stay keeps families together and relieves the financial stress so they can focus on their teenager/young adult getting better.

I've seen first-hand the impact of this program and the immediate benefit it brings to families in their darkest hour.

Please donate! It's going to be a a huge challenge both physically and mentally for me so appreciate all the support!

Get a good pair of hiking boots, make sure you walk them in well before the trek, where 2 pairs of socks (one thick, one thin), used talcum powder and metho will dry up any blisters that you get. Better get off the couch. You are going to do 16 km the day in pretty warm weather. You'll need to do some training, Emms. Put somewhere between 5 kg and 10 kg in a backpack when you do your training. Wish I were doing it. It's amazing country. Enjoy!
