“Her right eye was rolled up in her head and all I could see was white. I just knew that was really bad.”

After losing one eye to the cancer, there was still a chance that Audrey’s other eye could be affected. Claudine and Graham were overwhelmed and daunted by the thought of their little girl growing up blind.

So Audrey started a gruelling course of chemotherapy. Just one round of chemo is enough to make anyone sick. Little Audrey was subjected to seven full rounds.

Audrey's fighting cancer

Life-changing surgery

Audrey LOVES drawing. And, more than anything, she loves to draw rockets – especially rockets flying over snowy mountains.

Living in Queensland, Audrey's never experienced real snow. Or used the countless beanies her grandparents have sent her from Canada!

With your help, Audrey's wish to launch a rocket to snowy mountains can come true! She'll finally get to play in the snow, learn to ski and enjoy snowball fights with her family.


Audrey's amazing wish

Audrey is five years old and lives in Queensland with her parents Claudine and Graham, and little sister Yvonne.

Audrey was just two years old when she became unwell. Claudine noticed something wasn't quite right with her daughter after her daily nap. She called an ambulance straight away. 

Once in hospital, they discovered that Audrey had a tumour behind her eye. 

Because it was so far developed, there was no other option but to rush her into surgery and remove her eye. 

Audrey now has a prosthetic glass eye, which constantly needs to be adjusted and replaced as she grows. 

She needs regular check ups and tests to make sure that everything's still okay.

While her health is on track for now, throughout her cancer battle, Audrey missed out on being a kid. That's why her wish is so important - to help her get back some of the fun she's missed.

Life after a cancer diagnosis

This tax time, you can give the power of a wish.

“She's had the battle of her life and she's only five. She's been through more than most people will ever have to go through.”

"It means so much to be able to do something this amazing and fun as a family, after going through something so horrific."

Every day, six children are diagnosed with a critical illness in Australia.
