Welcome to 2019

There are so many big plans for Dainere’s Rainbow in 2019 to see a brighter light of hope and positive changes for the precious children diagnosed with paediatric brain tumours, those who are currently fighting and those that have survived but face each day with such devastating side effects from treatment.

All in honour of Dainere and the other most beloved children that have had their lives stolen by this number one disease killer of children in Australia. An entire classroom of children should not be losing their lives to this disease each year.

2019 is the year that Dainere should have been celebrating a significant milestone; her 21st Birthday and it will also be ten years since her truly life changing diagnosis. There are other special family events that she should be there for in 2019 but tragically cannot be.

Again, we reach out to you all with our most heartfelt, sincere and humble gratitude and would be extremely honoured to have your incredible support again in 2019, it is a united team effort that can create massive and positive change.

 If you would like to assist us to continue Dainere’s most selfless and inspirational work, please follow the Dainere’s Rainbow Facebook Page, Instagram, regularly read the website, join the mailing list or attend any Dainere’s Rainbow events or awareness raising activities.

We would like to share words from Dainere to begin 2019.

“It is so hard to believe that another year has passed by, we have a Calendar at home and it has a little inspirational poem for New Year on it, it does not say who wrote it, I would like to share it with you all, as I feel it sums up how we can live our lives throughout the coming year.

Happiness depends upon your outlook on life
Attitude is just as important as ability
Passion, find yours this year
Positive thoughts make everything easier
You are unique with special gifts, use them

New beginnings with a New Year
Enthusiasm, a true secret of success
Wishes, may they turn into goals

Years go by quickly, enjoy them
Energy, may you have lots of it
Appreciation of life, don’t take it for granted
Relax take the time to relax this coming year.”

We acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land where we meet and work, the Ngunnawal people, and the many other Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples from across Australia who have now made Canberra their home. We celebrate and respect their continuing culture and the contribution they make to the life of the ACT and region.

Sydney Children's Hospital Foundation are proud to display the new Registered Charity Tick from the Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission (ACNC), which aims to gives reassurance to the public that the charities they support are transparent and accountable. We rely on your donations and volunteering to ensure we can continue our vital work, so we want you to know your support is making a difference. Where you see the logo, it means the charity is registered with the ACNC so the public can easily find out what they do, who their beneficiaries are, how they are governed and how they manage their finances.
