HOW WE HELP

Win the Day Charity aims to raise awareness and support the funding of research related to rare childhood cancers. We also aim to help and support families who are dealing with the diagnosis of rare childhood cancer. We plan to do this by providing assistance and support for these families in regards to their accommodation, meals, and emotional support throughout the process of treatment for their sick child. Further to this, we provide nutritious meals to ALL oncology carers so they are also prioritising their mental and physcial health in what can be an incredibly stressful time.

Accommodation Assistance

Win the Day Organisation will accept grant applications on the proviso the family have provided a support letter from the social worker or practicing oncology doctor. In this letter it needs to state the following:
  • Date of diagnosis
  • Estimated length of treatment
  • Type of cancer
  • Treating Hospital
  • Brief description of the family situation
 
Applications for assistance with accommodation will need to supply evidence that they have applied for the IPTAAS Scheme for travel and accommodation assistance. 
Win the Day grant will reimburse the remaining out of pocket costs the family may incur up to the value of $5000 per year.
If funds have been exhausted, families will be prioritised and placed on a waiting list for up to
6 months upon receiving their application. Families will be supported up to 6 months after completing treatment for both the accommodation and nutrition grant. All families will be contacted via email on the outcome of their application within 14 days of submitting it.
 
We have extended the grants to any oncology rare family living in Australia.

Ongoing Treatment Support

Win the Day Organisation will accept grant applications on the proviso the family have provided a support letter from the social worker
or practicing oncology doctor. In this letter it
needs to state the following:
  • Date of diagnosis
  • Estimated length of treatment
  • Type of cancer
  • Treating Hospital
  • Brief description of the family situation
 
The ongoing treatment support is a one-off payment for a family that has had a recent diagnosis of rare cancer and it has relapsed. This amount is a one-off payment of $2000 to be used to alleviate financial stresses the family may be experiencing from the recent diagnosis. Families are also still able to apply for the nutrition and accommodation grant during this period.
If funds have been exhausted, families will be prioritised and placed on a waiting list for up to 6 months upon receiving their application.
Families will be supported up to 6 months after completing treatment for both the accommodation and nutrition grant. All families will be contacted via email on the outcome of their application within 14 days of submitting it.

Social Connections

The oncology world can be very lonely and isolated. The children when well enough live on iPads and the carers are often trying to find ways to pay their bills. We hope to maintain social connections with families and their sick child through networking opportunities with other families that have experienced a cancer journey. There is nothing more powerful than getting support from people that have lived it.

 

We know that the kids just want a friend and parents just want to talk to someone that knows how they feel. We will put you in contact with other families just like yours. Simply complete the contact us form and select social connections, for us to provide that connection for you.
