Challenge brings colour and relief to the lives of children and families living with cancer as they face the pressures of a life-threatening illness. With an emphasis on ‘fun’, we provide a range of practical services and therapies and a program of tailored experiences that remind them how good life can be.
We are based at Challenge House in West Melbourne. Within Challenge House is the Challenge Family Centre, which delivers a range of essential non-medical services for families including, massage therapy, music therapy and playgroup. Additional services to be available soon include a resource library, information seminars, counselling and art therapy.
Challenge also provides regular camps and activity days, tickets to concerts and events, overseas trips, family holidays, parent retreats and home help as well as support to children undergoing treatment in hospital with iPads, gaming consoles, family activities and celebrity visits.
