“My Little Voice Could Only Make a Small Difference, But Together Many Voices Could Create Change”
(Dainere Anthoney 1998-2013)
Friday, 15th February marked International Childhood Cancer Day. The Dainere’s Rainbow Team, for this day organised our annual Committee and Partners Event, which took the form of a special morning tea, held in Canberra at the picturesque Gungahlin Lakes Golf and Community Club.
It was an absolute honour for our family and members of the Dainere’s Rainbow Committee to welcome several representatives of our phenomenal long-time supporters: Qcity Transit, Rolfe Property Services, WMG Legal, Transit Graphics, Regional Wholesale Fruit, Mels Massage and My Gungahlin, they are all considered truly valued members of the Dainere’s Rainbow Family.
We also have the special privilege to welcome some incredible new, interested businesses and individuals along. Gratitude is also extended to Alistair Coe MLA for taking the time to join us and showing a genuine interest in learning more about paediatric brain tumours.
We were so extremely grateful and fortunate to have an extraordinary guest speaker; Elizabeth the CNC Neuro-Oncology from Sydney Children’s Hospital. Elizabeth presented the guests with an extremely moving video with images of children she had worked with. She then passionately and eloquently spoke about the incredible work of Associate Professor Ziegler, explained in depth how clinical trials worked and the significance of community funding through hardworking charity organisations like Dainere’s Rainbow.
During the presentation the vital importance of awareness raising and how even the most simple and smallest action all contribute to making an enormous difference. So never think you can’t do anything.
An opportunity for questions was given and there were some excellent questions, answered professionally and in depth. Then those present were treated to a scrumptious morning tea and the opportunity to speak with others who attended the event as well as find out more about Dainere, Dainere’s Rainbow and Partnership Opportunities for the upcoming Bal Masque Gala Fundraising Dinner.
It was such an insightful and significant presentation and we again wish to express our heartfelt gratitude to everyone who attended or were involved.
