EX-MED PROGRAM

It is essential that we get kids working with the experts to ensure that the level and type of physical activity they are undertaking is safe, and the benefits are being maximised. We currently have exercise physiologists and physiotherapists stationed in multiple hospitals around Australia, and we are hoping to secure one specialist practitioner per paediatric cancer centre by the end of 2020.

LITTLE-BIG-STEPS-RESEARCH-3

RESEARCH

Help fund a research project that investigates innovative interventions designed to increase participation in physical activity for children during cancer treatment.

YOU CAN FUND A FITBIT FOR ONE OF THE 900 CHILDREN DIAGNOSED WITH CANCER EACH YEAR.

When a child is going to through treatment for cancer it often involves high doses of chemotherapy and sometimes radiation therapy which can cause all sorts of horrible side effects such as nausea, vomiting, excessive tiredness, shortness of breath, irritability, decreased attention span, headaches, and dizziness.

A Fitbit can help with some of these side effects and give a child a sense of control and can motivate them to get moving.

The Fitbit costs $130. We know first-hand something quite simple like this can really help. Thank you for your generous donation.
