Far West Testimonial

15th June 2017

An indigenous family from western NSW had a 3-year-old child requiring a bone marrow transplant. The family, having exhausted all their finances, could not afford repeated travel to and from Sydney as well as ongoing city accommodation costs.

The Foundation coordinated assistance from Angel Flight to fully support the family and the Leukemia Foundation to assist with accommodation.

Friendly Faces Helping Hands Foundation also supported the family with food and moral support while they were in Sydney. Direct Foundation support and coordination of associated charitable organisations significantly eased the financial and psychological burden for the child and the family.
