We help families with cancer meet and support each other.
Bravery Box create moments of joy, happiness and distraction for kids with cancer. A childhood with cancer is a childhood that should be filled with fun and laughter.
On the days joy and happiness are hard to come by, we help children by supporting their families and by creating save spaces to talk and learn about pain, fear and grief.
Bravery Box help children build the emotional and social skills required to manage their days and weeks with humour, courage, compassion and acceptance. We create connection between kids’ oncology and the community.
Finally, we raise funds for kids’ cancer research – because no child should ever have to be cancer brave.
Creating safe spaces to talk and learn about pain, fear and grief
We have two very important priorities: support the child and support the family. Parents who feel supported, heard and hopeful are better able to help their child through cancer treatment.
It is important for families to feel understood, heard and supported during a childhood cancer diagnosis, treatment and survivorship.

Our 3-year-old daughter was fighting her way through 12 months of chemo for a brain tumour, enduring painful procedures, anaesthetics, endless medicines and all the horrors of chemo. The one thing that provided her with a glimmer of sunshine on the other side of each dreadful experience was the Bravery Box trolley. She would dry her tears, swallow her fear, and eagerly sort through the box for something that spoke to her – a toy, craft materials, colouring in, books, puzzles. She’d earned that little token of joy. And as parents we found support and belonging with the Bravery Box crew and oncology families. Thank you guys, you made a terrible time much easier. xx
The Bravery Box is held so tightly to my heart as it helped my little boy get through the worst moments in cancer treatment. They celebrate our tiny humans and give us overpowering love! This cause is everything we need in this world, and I will forever be grateful to Tanya, her family and team for, in their own moments of struggle, constantly being able to bring smiles to sick children’s lives. Angels really do walk among us! I love you all so much. xx
Slater knows that when he has a painful procedure, the Bravery Box will be there to reward and celebrate his bravery. But Bravery Box is so much more than gifts for the kids. It’s about a place where parents can meet each other and feel safe and understood. I know I can talk about what scares me with them, and they’ll understand. I’ve been to many of their events and spending time with other oncology families gets me through my harder days.
