You Can Stay

This September I'll be be trekking the Larapinta Trail in Central Australia, covering 86km over 6 days, raising funds for You Can Stay. 

My aim is to raise $2000, which will go towards accommodating young people from regional areas who are undergoing life-saving cancer treatment. 

About You Can Stay:

Quest Apartment Hotels has partnered with the Sony Foundation to launch You Can Stay - an initiative to support young Australians aged 15-25 diagnosed with cancer.

Around one third of young people affected by cancer live in regional or rural areas.

Typically diagnosed with rare cancers of the blood, brain, bone, and soft tissue requiring intense treatment in city hospitals, young patients from the country are disproportionately burdened by the costs of cancer simply by living out of metropolitan areas and their age.

To fill a gap in accommodation for teenagers and young adult cancer patients from regional areas, Sony Foundation Australia, the charity backed by the Sony group of companies, has partnered with Quest Apartment Hotels to launch the charitable accommodation program called ‘You Can Stay’.

Available to all cancer patients nationally aged 15 – 25 who live 100km or more from their treating hospital, You Can Stay is providing free accommodation a Quest Apartment Hotels for patients and their families.
