Fundraising in memory is a thoughtful way to celebrate the life of someone you love. It's a positive way to show your support and help Mummy's Wish reach more Australian Mums with cancer and their young families.

Many people set up an In Memory fundraising page in tribute to a loved one. In just minutes you can personalise your page, then start sharing the link with friends and family wherever they are in the world. Your page will display all the donations and messages made in their memory.

How you choose to fundraise can be as individual as the person you are remembering. You may like to ask for donations in lieu of flowers or use the page as a way to share stories and memories. You could organise your own event or even set yourself a challenge and dedicate it to someone special.

Thank you for thinking of Mummy's Wish at this difficult time. 

Mummy's Wish

We understand the real-life impact of the words ‘You have cancer’ because our founders have been there.

Our 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.

Our Vision: Manage the distressing impact of cancer on mums and their family units.

Every day around Australia, 13 families have their lives turned upside down when they find out mum has cancer. We have supported more than 3500 families since 2007. At current operating capacity we can only support 20 per cent (one-in-five) of these families. But it is our goal is to deliver our service to every single mum who receives a cancer diagnosis, while caring for young children by the year 2025. That is 5000 mums. Every year.

We know that every family’s situation is different and tailor our support for each family to ensure that these young families can keep functioning during mum’s battle with cancer. The work that we do allows mums undergoing treatment to cope with their illness and meet the physical and emotional needs of a young family. We connect with the mums on diagnosis and are there to offer support during her full treatment journey.

We can provide house cleaning, or home delivered nutritious meals, or gardening or other practical support. Each mum who is registered with us will receive a Mummy’s Wish Care Pack in the mail which includes a compendium to store important documents and keep notes; relevant information and resources including our ‘Dealing with Cancer: A guide for mums with cancer‘; a few little treats for them; and a voice-recordable Comfort Bear for each child aged 12 years and under.

$40. You can provide a voice recordable comfort bear to a child whose mum has cancer giving them a friend to hug and letting them hear their mum’s voice when she’s in hospital or receiving treatment.

$80. By giving $80, we can provide 2 hour house cleaning sessions to help alleviate the pressure on our mums to keep their household running, during cancer treatment. House cleaning sessions are one of our most impactful offerings as many of our mums find themselves too ill or physically exhausted from treatment and post-surgery recovery to keep on top of maintaining a clean household. These sessions ensure mums can spend more quality time with their families when they need it the most.

$150. Your generous gift of $150 will provide a care package to support children and families whose mum has cancer. Our care packages for a mum and her family include a voice-recordable comfort bear and book for each child, "Dealing with cancer - a guide for mums" resource and information booklet, a travel compendium and notepad (to document and store important medical resources and information), and a Mummy's Wish tote bag.

$600. Your generous donation will provide 60 healthy and nutritious ready-made meals during the course of mum's cancer treatment, filling their tables for those times when mum is too unwell to cook, or away from home for cancer treatment or surgery.
