KOALA Kids volunteers acknowledge 1,700 mothers & grandmothers

Mother's Day 2015_2 Mother's Day 2015_3 Mother's Day 2015KOALA Kids acknowledged that the children of around 1,700 mothers, grandmothers and other female family members remain in cancer treatment each year.  So on the day after Mother’s Day this year KOALA Kids volunteers accepted an invitation from Manhattan in Toorak Village to enjoy brunch and each other’s company while thinking of all of those mums whose lives are far from normal while their children are undergoing treatment.
One of our own volunteers, Anna Shimony whose son Eitan was diagnosed when he was two (he is now five) joined us and shared some of experiences she wishes she never had to endure as a mother.  Anna also has a daughter Mia, 3 years and is looking forward to Eitan’s last chemo and the end of treatment this August.
