Your gift will help sick kids like Arlo get better and have a Christmas that feels like home

It all started with a little rash.

Baby Arlo was just like every other healthy baby – he was a happy, little bundle of cuddly joy!

But a sudden rash appeared out of the blue. As a precaution, Amber, Arlo’s mum, took her 15-week-old son to the hospital. After tests were done on little Arlo, the doctor said the words no mother ever wants to hear: “I’m sorry, he has leukaemia’. Amber instantly felt numb.

The greatest gift is helping kids like Arlo get the best treatment in hospital.

Months of intense chemotherapy followed. And numerous other medical procedures such as general anaesthetics and lumbar punctures. Arlo bravely continues to fight with all his strength.

It’s been a long battle for young Arlo, this year he is about to do his sixth and final round of intense chemotherapy. But his Christmas will be different this time– because of donors just like you, Arlo will be home!

The greatest gift is helping kids like Arlo beat childhood cancer… so they can go home… and have an incredible reason to smile this Christmas!
