Koala Kids happy base continues to grow momentum for both families of children with cancer and adolescents and young people undergoing cancer treatment with more than 190 families presently enjoying a range of activities each month.

We recently provided a Zoom cooking workshop with one of Koala Kids newest volunteers, Susan Williams (a former cooking teacher), puzzle giveaways courtesy of FunBox Activities and Smiling Mind creative mindfulness activities. 

We were also proud to launch our new Community Corner. We all know there is a lot to be gained from the experiences of others and sharing of tips and advice. In every newsletter, we are featuring a different family’s story for other families to read. We are also inviting families to submit a question or ask for advice from other families. 

We want Koala Kids Community Corner to make our happy base families feel more connected.  We also  hope they will provide a safe space for people to share tips and advice on non-medical areas relating to a child’s cancer treatment such as balancing sibling’s schedules, practical hospital advice, recipes for chemo affected taste buds as well as relaxation techniques.
