Team Thea

Share my page

We're fundraising for the Starlight Children’s Foundation. And we need YOUR support.

Team Thea is all about creating awareness and igniting passion to support the most incredible foundation which has had the most profound impact on Theadora ("Thea"), her sisters, her family, and her whole experience with being diagnosed with Retinoblastoma (Cancer of the Retina), at just two years old.

The Starlight Captains have been with Thea from her very first hospital admission, and by her side at every appointment since, absolutely changing the narrative of her story.

Now at five years old, they are still such a huge part of her journey, still at every hospital admission and every appointment!

They have changed what should have been a traumatic, scary, painful journey - into the most fun, happy, silly, and memorable adventure! Each admission is a reason to celebrate! 

Instead of fearing the dreaded needles, the painful eye drops, the yucky mask that makes her sleep and makes her sick when she wakes - Thea will not talk about or almost not even recognise any of these awful things. She is so busy playing, laughing and have the time of her life with the wonderful Starlight Captains.

Her story could have gone a completely different direction, and in fact, without the Starlight Foundation, it would have! They have saved her childhood just as much as treatment has saved her life.

Let's support the foundation that understands HAPPINESS MATTERS, that kids should never lose their joy, should not be fearful and afraid, should not be left with lifelong trauma, and replace all those awful experiences with FUN!

Get behind this cause for Thea!

Get behind this cause for kids diagnosed with Retinoblastoma!

Get behind this cause for every kid who spends time in hospital wards, in regular theatre, having appointment after appointment!

Get behind this cause because it matters as much as the medical treatment!

Get behind this cause because our kids matter, our kids friends matter, our neighbours matter, and because all kids deserve to have a happy and fun childhood, regardless of their medical status!

Thank you to our Sponsors
