Bereavement Support

Challenge is committed to supporting families who have lost a child to cancer. We achieve this through our bereavement support programs.

Losing a child is a hardship no parent should ever face, but it is an unfortunate reality for some families living with a child who has cancer. Challenge supports all our bereaved families through this difficult process. We are only ever a phone call away and will do whatever we can to assist our families during this time.

Some of the programs included in our Bereaved Support services are:

  • Parent Retreats
    A tailored weekend retreat for bereaved parents with an experienced leader. The weekend includes fine dining, massages, and pampering.

  • Memento Books
    We work closely with families to source appropriate images and produce a special memento that can be kept forever as a vital part of the commemorative and healing process.

  • Sibling Services
    Challenge provides continued support to children who have lost a sibling to cancer. This includes camps and activity days, playgroup, sports and entertainment ticketing, events, and music/art therapy.

  • Parent services
    Challenge parents are also offered continued access to all our services, such as home help, date nights, massage therapy, holiday accommodation, and activity days/retreats tailored to both mums and dads.

If you would like to access any of these programs or seek any additional support, please contact us via the button below or call the Challenge office on (03) 9329 8474.
