Stress, anxiety and isolation aren't new for families like Pippa's. They have been in a crisis for days, months and for some, even years.

Pippa is raising money to ensure seriously ill children and their families, just like her's, will continue to be supported and have a home-away-from-home whilst they receive vital life-saving treatment.

On average, it costs Ronald McDonald House Charities Victoria & Tasmania $160 to support a family for one night. Please help continue this vital service by making a donation today.

We need your support, now more than ever.

Pippa Irving is calling for the community to help her raise money for Ronald McDonald House, helping to provide a home-away-from-home for families just like hers.

At just four years old, Pippa was diagnosed with a Pre-B ALL Leukaemia. Pippa's world was immediately turned upside-down. Ronald McDonald House Charities Victoria & Tasmania has supported Pippa and her family with a home-away-from-home for 140 nights so far while she receives medical treatment. It’s anticipated that Pippa will need to stay for another 150 nights before she can return home.

As the world deals with COVID-19, Pippa’s family and many others continue to focus on their child’s health along with the new challenges of the virus.

Pippa’s mum Mel understands that the need to support Ronald McDonald House so that it’s still able to support families long into the future, which is why Mel and Pippa are calling for your support. 

“Ronald McDonald House is an invaluable service and you never know you’re going to need it until your world comes crashing down.” said Mel. “If we can’t be out in the community it would make her day to see the community unite behind her crusade to raise the funds to provide a home-away-from-home for families like ours.”

We need the support of the community now more than ever to ensure we can support families long into the future

"Isolation, fear and uncertainty are new to many, but not to a family with a seriously ill child.

If you're able, please help Ronald McDonald House continue to support these families - as the toughest time of their lives gets even tougher"

- Pippa's Mum, Mel from Terang VIC
