We are a small, experienced team of staff and volunteers dedicated to helping Mums and their young families impacted by any type of cancer throughout Australia.

Our team has a comprehensive understanding of the day to day challenges a Mum will face during cancer treatment whilst caring for a young family. We all hope that one day there will be a cure for cancer, but until then we are here to help.

Jane and Jan, Volunteers

Jane has been with Mummy’s Wish since 2013. As the role and need grew, she enlisted her friend, Jan, who had recently retired and was looking for an opportunity where she could give back and still be active and engaged. Jane and Jan provide invaluable administration help a few days a week, particularly with the preparation and distribution of the Mummy’s Wish Care Pack sent to our mums. “We know how important these packs are to the mums who receive them. It is a very special feeling to know that we’ve personally sent some love and support to these mums,” Jane said .
