Mummy’s Wish can’t change the outcome of Mum’s cancer journey,
Mission: To support Australian families with children aged 12 years and under through the provision of practical, immediate and non-means tested support whilst Mum is receiving treatment for cancer.
Vision: Manage the distressing impact of cancer on Mums and their family units.
Mummy's Wish know all too well the shock and fear associated with finding out you have cancer when you have a young family to care for. Every day around Australia, 13 families have their lives turned upside down when they find out Mum has cancer. Mummy's Wish has touched over 2,000 families since 2007 and expect that number to increase to 4,000 Australian families by the end of 2016.
They know that every family’s situation is different and tailor their support for each family to ensure that these young families can keep functioning during Mum’s battle with cancer. The work that they do allow Mums undergoing treatment to cope with their illness and meet the physical and emotional needs of a young family. They connect with the Mums on diagnosis and are there to offer support during her full treatment journey.
Mummy’s Wish is an Australian registered charity and has been endorsed as a deductible gift recipient since 2007.
